Subject PseudoAuthenticationHandler (HADOOP-10193)
Date Thu, 06 Mar 2014 02:00:37 GMT
it used to be possible to submit a request to a sevlet
using org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.web.AuthFilter as POST specifying
user.name(simple authentication) as a form parameter.

For example,
curl -X POST -d 'user.name=foo' 'http://....'

after https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-10193, this no longer
works and user.name is only extracted
in org.apache.hadoop.security.authentication.server.PseudoAuthenticationHandler
if it's part of the query string.

Was this side effect intentional/desired?
Is there some way to make user.name as post parameter work?

Thank you
