Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-5796) The file system browser in the namenode UI requires SPNEGO.
Date Tue, 27 Jan 2015 18:53:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-5796?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14293957#comment-14293957

Haohui Mai commented on HDFS-5796:
----------------------------------

bq. Would that be OK to place back as a feature (turned off by default if needed), as the
new file browser has regressed?

Is giving every files the world-readable permission a possible workaround? It looks like the
workaround is fully equivalent to using dr. who here?

> After HDFS-5382, the browser makes webhdfs REST calls directly, requiring SPNEGO to work
between user's browser and namenode.  This won't work if the cluster's security infrastructure
is isolated from the regular network.  Moreover, SPNEGO is not supposed to be required for
user-facing web pages.
