Subject [jira] [Updated] (HBASE-9221) Provide interface for getting a User in the client
Date Fri, 13 Sep 2013 01:06:53 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-9221?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Jesse Yates updated HBASE-9221:
-------------------------------

    Attachment: hbase-9221-trunk-v2.patch

Ooops, missed a couple cases. Now we are completely wrapping all the static access to User
(outside of test cases, which didn't seem worth it at the time).

This has warped into covering both the client and server, rather than just the client. Means
a bit more sweeping with the changes, but better in that we get a shim layer for everything,
for users that need it.

> Sometimes, users will want to provide their own User class depending on the type of security
they will support in their local environment. For instance, running Hadoop1 vs Hadoop2 vs
CDH means potentially different ways of getting the UserGroupInformation. 
> This issue abstracts out the mechanism by which we obtain an o.a.h.hbase.security.User
to a UserProvider. This UserProvider can then be extented as a Hadoop 1/2 shim as well as
supporting custom authentication code.
