Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6988) Add support for reading multiple hadoop delegation token files
Date Tue, 05 Oct 2010 16:22:36 GMT

Aaron T. Myers commented on HADOOP-6988:
----------------------------------------

Thanks for the comments, Allen.

The environment variable already exists in hadoop trunk; it's just only capable of specifying
a single path to a token file. I'd like to be able to specify multiple token files via this
variable. This is really only for convenience, as it's entirely possible to stuff multiple
delegation token objects into a single credentials object, which is then serialized to a file.
I considered creating a tool which would be capable of merging multiple delegation token files
into one, but this seemed like a cleaner solution.

> It would be nice if there were a way to specify multiple delegation token files via the
HADOOP_TOKEN_FILE_LOCATION environment variable and the "mapreduce.job.credentials.binary"
configuration value. I suggest a colon-separated list of paths, each of which is read as a
separate delegation token file.
