Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-12291) Add support for nested groups in LdapGroupsMapping
Date Fri, 31 Jul 2015 04:38:04 GMT
Gautam Gopalakrishnan created HADOOP-12291:

             Summary: Add support for nested groups in LdapGroupsMapping
                 Key: HADOOP-12291
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-12291
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: security
            Reporter: Gautam Gopalakrishnan

When using {{LdapGroupsMapping}} with Hadoop, nested groups are not supported. So for example
if user {{jdoe}} is part of group A which is a member of group B, the group mapping currently
returns only group A.

Currently this facility is available with {{ShellBasedUnixGroupsMapping}} and SSSD (or similar
tools) but would be good to have this feature as part of {{LdapGroupsMapping}} directly.
