Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-5526) Optional file permission settings
Date Tue, 06 Mar 2012 07:18:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-5526?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13223050#comment-13223050

Lars Hofhansl commented on HBASE-5526:
--------------------------------------

Since the background for this is to be able to browse the directories through the HDFS overview
JSPs but to disallow downloading of the actual files, maybe we can just use the FS' default
umask for HBase created directories and only override for HBase created files...?

> Currently many all the files created by the HBase user are just written using the default
file permissions granted by hdfs. However, it is often times adventageous to only allow a
subset of the world to view the actual data written by hbase when scanning the raw hdfs files.

> This ticket covers setting permissions for files written to hdfs that are storing actual
user data, as opposed to _all_ files written to hdfs as many of them contain non-identifiable
metadata.
