Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-9352) Expose UGI.setLoginUser for tests
Date Fri, 01 Mar 2013 22:15:16 GMT
Daryn Sharp created HADOOP-9352:

             Summary: Expose UGI.setLoginUser for tests
                 Key: HADOOP-9352
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9352
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: security
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-alpha, 0.23.0, 3.0.0
            Reporter: Daryn Sharp
            Assignee: Daryn Sharp

The {{UGI.setLoginUser}} method is not publicly exposed, which makes it impossible to correctly
test code executed outside of an explicit {{doAs}}.  {{getCurrentUser}}/{{getLoginUser}} will
always vivify the login user from the user running the test, and not an arbitrary user to
be determined by the test.  The method is documented with why it's not ready for prime-time,
but it's good enough for tests.
