Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-8923) WEBUI shows an intermediatory page when the cookie expires.

Benoy Antony created HADOOP-8923:

             Summary: WEBUI shows an intermediatory page when the cookie expires.
                 Key: HADOOP-8923
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8923
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: security
    Affects Versions: 1.1.0
            Reporter: Benoy Antony
            Assignee: Benoy Antony
            Priority: Minor

The WEBUI does Authentication (SPNEGO/Custom) and then drops a cookie. 
Once the cookie expires, the webui displays a page saying that "authentication token expired".
The user has to refresh the page to get authenticated again. This page can be avoided and
the user can authenticated without showing such a page to the user.
Also the when the cookie expires, a warning is logged. But there is no need to log this as
this is not of any significance.
