Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-6386) Audit log messages do not include column family / qualifier information consistently
Date Thu, 23 Aug 2012 02:18:42 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-6386?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13440003#comment-13440003
] 

Gregory Chanan commented on HBASE-6386:
---------------------------------------

I don't think listing more than one permission error is necessary.

Listing the first permission denied (that caused the entire request to bail) does seem like
useful information to me, for debug and audit reasons.  I don't know the security area well
though, perhaps Andrew or someone else could weigh in.

> The code related to this issue is in AccessController.java:permissionGranted().
> When creating audit logs, that method will do one of the following:
> * grant access, create audit log with table name only
> * deny access because of table permission, create audit log with table name only
> * deny access because of column family / qualifier permission, create audit log with
specific family / qualifier
> So, in the case where more than one column family and/or qualifier are in the same request,
there will be a loss of information. Even in the case where only one column family and/or
qualifier is involved, information may be lost.
> It would be better if this behavior consistently included all the information in the
request; regardless of access being granted or denied, and regardless which permission caused
the denial, the column family and qualifier info should be part of the audit log message.
