Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-6375) Listing extended attributes with the search permission
Date Wed, 14 May 2014 00:45:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-6375?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13997120#comment-13997120
] 

Charles Lamb commented on HDFS-6375:
------------------------------------

Alternatively, we could just look at the permissions and only return the names (or names +
values) based on the permissions that the caller has.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-6375
>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Sub-task
>          Components: namenode
>    Affects Versions: HDFS XAttrs (HDFS-2006)
>            Reporter: Andrew Wang
>            Assignee: Charles Lamb

> 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.
