-----------------------------------

             Summary: NameNode: implement handling of ACLs in combination with symlinks.
                 Key: HDFS-5613
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-5613
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Sub-task
          Components: namenode
            Reporter: Chris Nauroth


A symlink in HDFS does not have an ACL of its own.  Operations that modify the ACL of a symlink
instead modify the target of the symlink.  For operations that enforce ACLs, enforcement is
on the target of the symlink.  This is similar to existing handling of permissions for symlinks.
