Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-6444) Expose the ability to set custom HTTP Request Headers for the REST client used by RemoteHTable
Date Tue, 24 Jul 2012 01:00:55 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-6444?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13421074#comment-13421074

Erich Hochmuth commented on HBASE-6444:

I've spiked out a solution that seems to work. I was thinking of exposing the ability to pass
rest.client.Client an implementation of an interface that implemented a callback method that
would get executed in the executeURI method between setting of the passed in headers and execution
of httpClient.executeMethod. I was going to provide a no-op or null implementation of the
call back interface by default.

> My corporate security office (ISO) requires that all http traffic get routed through
a Web Access Management layer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_access_management)
> Our Hadoop cluster has been segmented by a virtual network with all access to HBase from
outside clients being managed through HBase Stargate rest server.
> The corporate WAM system requires that all http clients authenticate with it first before
making any http request to any http service in the corporate network. After the http client
authenticates with the WAM system the WAM system returns the client a set of values that must
be inserted into a http cookie and request header of all future http requests to other http
> This would mean that all requests through the RemoteHTable interface would require that
this cookie and request header be set as part of the http request. org.apache.hadoop.hbase.rest.client.Client
looks like the appropriate place that this functionality would need to be plugged into.
