Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-11683) Need a plugin API to translate long principal names to local OS user names arbitrarily
Date Fri, 21 Aug 2015 16:34:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-11683?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14706974#comment-14706974

roger mak commented on HADOOP-11683:
------------------------------------

Hi, we are new to the contribution process. Just wonder if we are on the right track.

The automated QA test returned with +1 test case failure which in our opinion is unrelated
to our change. Do we need to do anything to restart the review process? or we just need to
wait?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

> We need a plugin API to translate long principal names (e.g. john.doe@EXAMPLE.COM) to
local OS user names (e.g. user123456) arbitrarily.
> For some organizations the name translation is straightforward (e.g. john.doe@EXAMPLE.COM
to john_doe), and the hadoop.security.auth_to_local configurable mapping is sufficient to
resolve this (see HADOOP-6526). However, in some other cases the name translation is arbitrary
and cannot be generalized by a set of translation rules easily.
