Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-10322) Strip tags from KV while sending back to client on reads
Date Wed, 15 Jan 2014 07:09:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-10322?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13871745#comment-13871745

Andrew Purtell commented on HBASE-10322:
----------------------------------------

bq. So export tool will not be working with this. Correct?

No, that is not what I said.

I said: The rock bottom simplest way to do this is to just not support tags in RPC codecs.
Maybe we can have a separate class that keeps them for the Export tool specifically? Import
is no problem if the user, presumably privileged, is building HFiles and therefore the cells
within them directly. Accumulo has the same approach to whole file imports - no checking done,
YMMV.

> Right now we have some inconsistency wrt sending back tags on read. We do this in scan
when using Java client(Codec based cell block encoding). But during a Get operation or when
a pure PB based Scan comes we are not sending back the tags.  So any of the below fix we have
to do
> 1. Send back tags in missing cases also. But sending back visibility expression/ cell
ACL is not correct.
> 2. Don't send back tags in any case. This will a problem when a tool like ExportTool
use the scan to export the table data. We will miss exporting the cell visibility/ACL.
> 3. Send back tags based on some condition. It has to be per scan basis. Simplest way
is pass some kind of attribute in Scan which says whether to send back tags or not. But believing
some thing what scan specifies might not be correct IMO. Then comes the way of checking the
user who is doing the scan. When a HBase super user doing the scan then only send back tags.
So when a case comes like Export Tool's the execution should happen from a super user.
> So IMO we should go with #3.
> Patch coming soon.
