Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3698) Implement access control for submitting jobs to queues in the JobTracker
Date Mon, 18 Aug 2008 08:27:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3698?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12623283#action_12623283

Hemanth Yamijala commented on HADOOP-3698:

- We could have an implementation on the following lines:

abstract class QueueAccessVerifier {

  enum QueueOperation {
    // ..

  private Configuration conf;

  public void setConfiguration(Configuration conf) {
    this.conf = conf;

  public Configuration getConfiguration() {
    return conf;

  // basic initialization, for e.g. read up a conf file which has the list
  // of configured groups and users, and so on.
  public abstract void initialize();

  // verify if the specified operation is allowed on the specified queue
  public abstract boolean verifyAccess(QueueOperation operation, 
                                        String queue);

- The class name of a concrete implementation of QueueAccessVerifier can be specified in hadoop's
configuration using a new variable, say {{hadoop.rm.accessverifier}}, and initialized by the
- Following this, implementations of methods defined in JobSubmissionProtocol, such as {{submitJob}}
and {{killJob}}, can use the instance of QueueAccessVerifier to check if the operation is
allowed or not.
- In order to get the currently logged in user and his/her groups, we can probably re-use
the UserGroupInformation class that HDFS uses for permission checking. If we decide to follow
that route, JobClient could set the {{UGI_PROPERTY_NAME}} just like DFSClient does, by doing
a login.

Please let me know if this approach seems fine.

> HADOOP-3445 implements multiple queues in the JobTracker as part of the new resource
manager for Hadoop (HADOOP-3421). There needs to be a mechanism to control who can submit
jobs to a specified queue. This JIRA is for tracking the requirements, approach and implementation
for the same.
