Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-10970) Cleanup KMS configuration keys
Date Fri, 15 Aug 2014 15:42:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-10970?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14098679#comment-14098679

Larry McCay commented on HADOOP-10970:

[~andrew.wang] - I don't think it is appropriate to change the config element name to URI
- it is actually a path of multiple provider URIs. Which allows for location of a key from
the UserKeyProvider if it has been added to the Credentials file or from any number of other
providers in order.

I would not agree with changing that to a single URI or with representing multiple URIs as
a property that makes it seem like one. This actually hurts clarity, in my opinion.

Am I missing something about your intent there?

> It'd be nice to add descriptions to the config keys in kms-site.xml.
> Also, it'd be good to rename key.provider.path to key.provider.uri for clarity, or just
drop ".path".
