Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-9525) hadoop utilities need to support provided delegation tokens
Date Tue, 26 Jan 2016 18:51:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-9525?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15117737#comment-15117737

Allen Wittenauer commented on HDFS-9525:

bq. it will cause webhdfs to look for a token even if security is off. Nothing else in webhdfs
should require a change.

if canRefreshDelegationToken is (defaulted) to true and without a token present in the UGI,
then on insecure systems it will attempt to fetch a delegation.  Perhaps the 

        if (canRefreshDelegationToken) {

should be

        this.canRefreshDelegationToken = true;
        if (canRefreshDelegationToken && UserGroupInformation.isSecurityEnabled())

would satisfy everyone.

> 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.
