Enis Soztutar created HBASE-7917:
------------------------------------

             Summary: Documentation for secure bulk load
                 Key: HBASE-7917
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-7917
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Enis Soztutar
            Assignee: Enis Soztutar
             Fix For: 0.96.0


One of our tests for bulk loading on a secure cluster failed, because of it was 
not configured properly. We should document the setup. 

>From SecureBulkLoadEndpoint: 
{code}
1. Create an hbase owned staging directory which is
 * world traversable (711): /hbase/staging
 * 2. A user writes out data to his secure output directory: /user/foo/data
 * 3. A call is made to hbase to create a secret staging directory
 * which globally rwx (777): /user/staging/averylongandrandomdirectoryname
 * 4. The user makes the data world readable and writable, then moves it
 * into the random staging directory, then calls bulkLoadHFiles()
 *
 * Like delegation tokens the strength of the security lies in the length
 * and randomness of the secret directory.
{code}


See HBASE-5498 for details on secure bulk load.
