Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-9866) Support the mode where REST server authorizes proxy users
Date Sat, 02 Nov 2013 16:45:23 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-9866?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13812064#comment-13812064

Jimmy Xiang commented on HBASE-9866:

I saw that. It is something like user A is allowed to do something on behalf of user B, now
let user C to do it on behalf of user B instead, if allowed. If A == C and they share the
same configuration, it may be fine.  Now, A could be different from C.  Even they are the
same, the configuration could be different since one is the REST server (i,e, HBase client
side), the other is on the HBase server (master/rs) side.

> In one use case, someone was trying to authorize with the REST server as a proxy user.
That mode is not supported today.

> curl -i --negotiate -u : http://<HOST>:<PORT>/version/cluster?doas=<USER>
