Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-13441) Document LdapGroupsMapping keystore password properties
Date Fri, 29 Jul 2016 17:15:20 GMT
Wei-Chiu Chuang created HADOOP-13441:

             Summary: Document LdapGroupsMapping keystore password properties
                 Key: HADOOP-13441
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-13441
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Wei-Chiu Chuang
            Priority: Minor

A few properties are not documented.
This property is used as an alias to get password from credential providers, or, fall back
to using the value as password in clear text. There is also a caveat that credential providers
can not be a HDFS-based file system, as mentioned in HADOOP-11934, to prevent cyclic dependency
This should be documented in core-default.xml and GroupsMapping.md

This property controls whether or not to fall back to storing credential password as cleartext.
This should be documented in core-default.xml.

This is mentioned in _CredentialProvider API Guide_, but not in core-default.xml

The "Supported Features" in _CredentialProvider API Guide_ should link back to GroupsMapping.md#LDAP
