Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-13230) s3a's use of fake empty directory blobs does not interoperate with other s3 tools

-------------------------------------

             Summary: s3a's use of fake empty directory blobs does not interoperate with other
s3 tools
                 Key: HADOOP-13230
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-13230
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: fs/s3
    Affects Versions: 2.9.0
            Reporter: Aaron Fabbri


Users of s3a may not realize that, in some cases, it does not interoperate well with other
s3 tools, such as the AWS CLI.  (See HIVE-13778, IMPALA-3558).

Specifically, if a user:

- Creates an empty directory with hadoop fs -mkdir s3a://bucket/path
- Copies data into that directory via another tool, i.e. aws cli.
- Tries to access the data in that directory with any Hadoop software.

Then the last step fails because the fake empty directory blob that s3a wrote in the first
step, causes s3a (listStatus() etc.) to continue to treat that directory as empty, even though
the second step was supposed to populate the directory with data.

I wanted to document this fact for users. We may mark this as not-fix, "by design".. May also
be interesting to brainstorm solutions and/or a config option to change the behavior if folks
care.
