Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-9221) Provide interface for getting a User in the client
Date Wed, 14 Aug 2013 23:01:48 GMT
Jesse Yates created HBASE-9221:
----------------------------------

             Summary: Provide interface for getting a User in the client
                 Key: HBASE-9221
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-9221
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Client, hadoop2, security
            Reporter: Jesse Yates
            Assignee: Jesse Yates


Sometimes, users will want to provide their own User class depending on the type of security
they will support in their local environment. For instance, running Hadoop1 vs Hadoop2 vs
CDH means potentially different ways of getting the UserGroupInformation. 

This issue abstracts out the mechanism by which we obtain an o.a.h.hbase.security.User to
a UserProvider. This UserProvider can then be extented as a Hadoop 1/2 shim as well as supporting
custom authentication code.
