Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6832) Provide a web server plugin that uses a static user for the web UI
Date Fri, 10 Sep 2010 23:06:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6832?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12908227#action_12908227
] 

Todd Lipcon commented on HADOOP-6832:
-------------------------------------

I think we should make this a default servlet filter, and add a configuration value like {{hadoop.http.staticusermapping.user}}
that determines the username. We can default this to Dr.Who, or perhaps {{webuser}} or {{nobody}}
to be more standard-looking. We can also support dfs.web.ugi as a deprecated configuration.

Let me know if you want me to pick this up where you left off, Owen.

> We need a simple plugin that uses a static user for clusters with security that don't
want to authenticate users on the web UI.
