Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-13310) S3A reporting of file group as null is harmful to compatibility for the shell.
Date Wed, 22 Jun 2016 10:43:57 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-13310?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15344103#comment-15344103
] 

Allen Wittenauer commented on HADOOP-13310:
-------------------------------------------

The usual implementation for file systems that don't support UNIX-style permissions is to
reflect the uid and group of the owner of the current process.  This way permissions checks
"just work" since they are invalid anyway.

> S3A does not persist group information in file metadata.  Instead, it stubs the value
of the group to an empty string.  Although the JavaDocs for {{FileStatus#getGroup}} indicate
that empty string is a possible return value, this is likely to cause compatibility problems.
 Most notably, shell scripts that expect to be able to perform positional parsing on the output
of things like {{hadoop fs -ls}} will stop working if retargeted from HDFS to S3A.
