Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-14935) Azure: POSIX permissions are taking effect in access() method even when authorization is enabled
Date Thu, 12 Oct 2017 20:48:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-14935?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16202599#comment-16202599
] 

Steve Loughran commented on HADOOP-14935:
-----------------------------------------

OK. So access() is how code should check for permission; and the change whith HADOOP-14845
is something which you'll turn off for Hive, but which may be used elsewhere. By making it
optional you reduce RPC calls and so increase performance? Is that the reason? That I can
understand.

Like I said, I'll go with Thomas's opinions here: I'm happy, though I'd add some more detail
to the javadoc of the option to explain it, which is something I Can do during the commit

> FileSystem implementation class for azure i.e. {{NativeAzureFileSystem}} does not override
{{access(path,mode)}} method and uses the default implementation from the base class. This
base implementaion uses the POSIX permissions to check if the requested user has access to
given path or not even when authorization is enabled, which is incorrect.
> {{NativeAzureFileSystem.access()}} in authorization enabled mode should use the authorization
mechanism provided instead of relying on the POSIX permission ons. So the proposal is to override
{{FileSystem.access()}} method in {{NativeAzureFileSystem}} such that it honors the authorization
mechanism configured in authorization enabled mode and falls back to POSIX permissions otherwise.
