Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-9023) HttpFs is too restrictive on usernames
Date Fri, 09 Nov 2012 18:00:13 GMT
Harsh J created HADOOP-9023:

             Summary: HttpFs is too restrictive on usernames
                 Key: HADOOP-9023
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9023
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Harsh J

HttpFs tries to use UserProfile.USER_PATTERN to match all usernames before a doAs impersonation
function. This regex is too strict for most usernames, as it disallows any special character
at all. We should relax it more or ditch needing to match things there.

WebHDFS currently has no such limitations.
