Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-11810) Access SSL Passwords through Credential Provider API
Date Thu, 28 Aug 2014 21:57:10 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-11810?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14114437#comment-14114437

Andrew Purtell commented on HBASE-11810:

bq. Yep - branch-2 should work.

How do I know the reflective parts of the test engaged? I think some DEBUG level logging would
be helpful. I will fix the log4j configuration problem wrt. unit tests in hbase-common right
now, see HBASE-11856

> HADOOP-10607 introduced the credential provider API for allowing passwords and other
sensitive configuration items to be stored in an external provider.
> RESTServer is accessing passwords stored in clear text in Configuration through the standard
get() method. By using the new Configuration.getPassword method instead, the credential provider
API will be checked first then fall back to clear text - when allowed.
