Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-11438) [Visibility Controller] Support UTF8 character as Visibility Labels
Date Wed, 13 Aug 2014 05:38:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-11438?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14095172#comment-14095172
] 

Anoop Sam John commented on HBASE-11438:
----------------------------------------

bq.Only when parsing visibility expressions will we need to differentiate between the characters
that make up a label identifier and operators in the expression. There we require operator-like
chars in the identifier to be quoted
Yes there to differentiate, we will quote it.  What I was thinking is when a label contains
these special op characters, user has to quote it.  Not just in CellVisibility but also in
Authorizations. If the auth label is quoted we do NO validation. But when it is not, we can
validate the presence of special op chars. And so HBASE-10883  still present. This was in
my mind though not so strong about. If you both feel that is not really needed I will also
go with you.

> This would be an action item that we would be addressing so that the visibility labels
could have UTF8 characters in them.  Also allow the user to use a client supplied API that
allows to specify the visibility labels inside double quotes such that UTF8 characters and
cases like &, |, ! and double quotes itself could be specified with proper escape sequence.
 Accumulo too provides one such API in the client side.
