Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6862) Add api to add user/group to AccessControlList
Date Wed, 04 Aug 2010 11:01:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6862?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12895217#action_12895217
] 

Amareshwari Sriramadasu commented on HADOOP-6862:
-------------------------------------------------

I think adding/removing a wild card character through this api should not be allowed, because
adding a '*' (the only allowed wild card character in ACL) to an already created ACL does
not make sense. Also, It makes sense to accept it only in the constructor as it is now, which
defines the behavior to be simple. For example, adding it twice by addUser('*") and removing
it by removeUser("*") once would result in allowing all the users.

I will submit a patch which throws an exception saying "wild card not allowed" if a wild card
character is passed.

Thoughts?
