Subject [jira] Updated: (HADOOP-2371) Candidate user guide for permissions feature of Hadoop DFS
Date Fri, 15 Feb 2008 23:26:08 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2371?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Robert Chansler updated HADOOP-2371:

    Status: Patch Available  (was: Open)

I made the changes suggested by Nicholas and had Nicholas review the changed prose.

Hairong's suggestion to publish the design document is good, but I don't want to mix the two.
I'll make a new task to publish the other document.

>                 Key: HADOOP-2371
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2371
>             Project: Hadoop Core
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: dfs
>    Affects Versions: 0.16.0
>            Reporter: Robert Chansler
>            Assignee: Robert Chansler
>             Fix For: 0.16.1
>         Attachments: Hadoop2371.patch, hdfs_permissions_guide.pdf
> This feature introduces a POSIX-like permissions model for DFS in Hadoop 0.16. The user
guide describes the behavior users of DFS will experience. In this release, the user identity
model is very elementary: you are who your host says you are. It is understood that this is
not "secure" in any meaningful sense, but rather the permissions model allows a cooperative
community to share file system resources in an organized fashion. The user identity model
will evolve in the coming months.
> As mentioned in the draft, the content of the guide will be incorporated into the regular
Hadoop documentation from Forrest. This document is being published as an early preview.
