Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-3801) Provide a way to disable browsing of the files from the web UI
Date Tue, 14 Aug 2012 04:53:37 GMT
Harsh J created HDFS-3801:

             Summary: Provide a way to disable browsing of the files from the web UI
                 Key: HDFS-3801
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-3801
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: name-node
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-alpha
            Reporter: Harsh J
            Priority: Minor

A few times we've had requests from users who wish to disable browsing of the filesystem in
the web UI completely, while keeping other servlet functionality enabled (such as fsck, etc.).
Right now, the cheap way to do this is by blocking out the DN web port (50075) from access
by clients, but that also hampers HFTP transfers.

We should instead provide a toggle config for the JSPs to use and disallow browsing if the
toggle's enabled. The config can be true by default, to not change the behavior.
