Subject [jira] [Updated] (HDFS-6375) Listing extended attributes with the search permission
Date Tue, 20 May 2014 21:29:38 GMT

Charles Lamb updated HDFS-6375:
-------------------------------

    Attachment: HDFS-6375.5.patch

I've implemented a listXAttrs api. It will return a List<String> of xattr names for
a Path, provided the caller has execute/scan permission for Path in the parent directory.

> From the attr(5) manpage:
> {noformat}
>        Users with search access to a file or directory may retrieve a list  of
>        attribute names defined for that file or directory.
> {noformat}
> This is like doing {{getfattr}} without the {{-d}} flag, which we currently don't support.
