Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-5526) Optional file permission settings
Date Tue, 06 Mar 2012 06:47:02 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-5526?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13223036#comment-13223036

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

What's with all the changes to hbase-defaults.xml? ;)

For this jira I was actually thinking something simpler: an umask for HBase created directories
and an umask for HBase created files. Would that not cover all interesting scenarios?

> 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.
