Subject [jira] Created: (HDFS-1113) Allow users with write access to a directory to change ownership of its subdirectories/files
Date Tue, 27 Apr 2010 21:08:32 GMT
Allow users with write access to a directory to change ownership of its subdirectories/files
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HDFS-1113
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1113
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: name-node
         Environment: All
            Reporter: Milind Bhandarkar
            Assignee: Sanjay Radia


owner and group of a file/directory, and namespace/diskspace quota for a directory are mutable
attributes. If I have writable access to a directory, say /team/MyTeam, and if there are subdirectories
underneath, such as /team/MyTeam/TeamMember1, /team/MyTeam/TeamMember2, then I should be able
to chown, chgrp, setQuota, clrQuota on TeamMemeber{1|2} subdirectories. Currently in HDFS
(and in Posix), it requires me to be a superuser to perform these operations.
