Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-9525) hadoop utilities need to support provided delegation tokens
Date Wed, 20 Jan 2016 15:42:40 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-9525?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15108756#comment-15108756

Allen Wittenauer commented on HDFS-9525:

Let's not try to limit ourselves to just solving WebHDFS here.  I think it's important to
recognize that:

* this goes beyond just distcp, esp wrt future potential applications (so mapreduce.job.credentials.binary
isn't particularly useful if one isn't doing MR...)
* post HADOOP-12563 there is a very real possibility of having more than just HDFS delegation
tokens in use
* there may be more than two clusters involved
* there are plenty of places where there is a recommended configuration/usage, but hadoop
doesn't limit users just to that limit

Whenever Hadoop limits itself to solving the absolute, immediate problem rather than building
for the future, it ends up a mess.  (I'll be more than happy to give examples, but I figure
I don't need to...)  As a community, we've *always* succeeded and reached greater heights
when keeping the door wide open.

> When using the webhdfs:// filesystem (especially from distcp), we need the ability to
inject a delegation token rather than webhdfs initialize its own.  This would allow for cross-authentication-zone
file system accesses.
