Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-14998) Make AuthenticationFilter @Public
Date Tue, 31 Oct 2017 18:15:00 GMT
Robert Kanter created HADOOP-14998:

             Summary: Make AuthenticationFilter @Public
                 Key: HADOOP-14998
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-14998
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Sub-task
    Affects Versions: 3.0.0
            Reporter: Robert Kanter

{{org.apache.hadoop.security.authentication.server.AuthenticationFilter}} is currently marked
as {{\@Private}} and {{\@Unstable}}.  
public class AuthenticationFilter implements Filter {

However, many other projects (e.g. Oozie, Hive, Solr, HBase, etc) have been using it for quite
some time without having any compatibility issues AFAIK.  It doesn't seem to have had any
breaking changes in quite some time.  On top of that, it implements {{javax.servlet.Filter}},
so it can't change too widely anyway.  {{AuthenticationFilter}} provides a lot of useful code
for dealing with tokens, Kerberos, etc, and we should encourage related projects to re-use
this code instead of rolling their own.

I propose we change it to {{\@Public}} and {{\@Evolving}}.
