Subject [jira] Created: (HADOOP-3342) Better safety of killing jobs via web interface
Date Sat, 03 May 2008 10:34:55 GMT
Better safety of killing jobs via web interface

                 Key: HADOOP-3342
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3342
             Project: Hadoop Core
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 0.16.3
            Reporter: Daniel Naber
            Priority: Minor
         Attachments: kill-job.diff

Although the option to kill jobs via the web interface is turned off by default, it should
be made safer. Currently the "kill" action and its confirmation is just a link so it could
be triggered by a crawler or by a browser's pre-fetching mechanism. The attached patch makes
it work only with "POST" so that e.g. well-behaved crawlers shouldn't be able to access it.
