Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-12291) Add support for nested groups in LdapGroupsMapping
Date Wed, 04 May 2016 17:28:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-12291?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15271032#comment-15271032

Anu Engineer commented on HADOOP-12291:

Thanks for the Patch v3 and taking care of all the issues.

I have 2 minor comments on Patch v3.

{{LdapGroupsMapping.java Line:76}} Let us remove this old comment.
or a limit of -1, it will traverse the entire tree, but
this is not recommended as it will degrade performance.

Since we decided not to support -1 and the code does not check for that, It might be safer
to modify these three lines.

{{LdapGroupsMapping.java Line 311}}

{code} getGroupNames(groupResult, groups, groupDNs, goUpHierarchy != 0); {code}
as {code} getGroupNames(groupResult, groups, groupDNs, goUpHierarchy > 0); {code}

{{LdapGroupsMapping.java Line 313}} {code} if (goUpHierarchy != 0)  {code} as {code} if (goUpHierarchy
> 0) {code}
{{LdapGroupsMapping.java Line 358}} 
{code}  if (goUpHierarchy == 0 || groups.isEmpty()) {code}
as {code}  if (goUpHierarchy <= 0 || groups.isEmpty()) {code}

This is to prevent the case where someone sets the a value of -1 in the config and we treat
it as a positive  value in code. This reinforces our assumption that this value is always

> When using {{LdapGroupsMapping}} with Hadoop, nested groups are not supported. So for
example if user {{jdoe}} is part of group A which is a member of group B, the group mapping
currently returns only group A.
> Currently this facility is available with {{ShellBasedUnixGroupsMapping}} and SSSD (or
similar tools) but would be good to have this feature as part of {{LdapGroupsMapping}} directly.
