-----------------------------------

             Summary: API to refreshSuperUserGroupsConfiguration
                 Key: HBASE-14169
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-14169
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Francis Liu
            Assignee: Francis Liu


For deployments that use security. User impersonation (AKA doAs()) is needed for some services
(ie Stargate, thriftserver, Oozie, etc). Impersonation definitions are defined in a xml config
file and read and cached by the ProxyUsers class. Calling this api will refresh cached information,
eliminating the need to restart the master/regionserver whenever the configuration is changed.


Implementation just adds another method to AccessControlService.
