Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-7985) WebHDFS should be always enabled
Date Tue, 24 Mar 2015 23:08:54 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-7985?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14378873#comment-14378873

Andrew Wang commented on HDFS-7985:

It disables the webui, but you can still use HDFS without the webui. Granted, it's less useful,
but that doesn't mean it's an invalid configuration.

Since it smacks of incompatibility, isn't it better to not remove this config in 2.x? Since
it defaults to true, I don't see a "false" value biting us very often. Another more friendly
(and compatible) approach would be improving the error message when WebHDFS is disabled.

> Since 2.7 the HTML 5 UI depends on WebHDFS. Disabling WebHDFS will break the UI, thus
WebHDFS should be always enabled.
