Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-10439) Document how to configure REST server impersonation
Date Sun, 21 Sep 2014 21:08:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-10439?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14142709#comment-14142709

Aditya Kishore commented on HBASE-10439:

This seems to be partially incorrect

Adding the following configuration to {{hbase-site.xml}} has no effect

as {{ProxyUsers.authorize()}} internally calls [refreshSuperUserGroupsConfiguration()|https://github.com/apache/hadoop-common/blob/branch-2.4/hadoop-common-project/hadoop-common/src/main/java/org/apache/hadoop/security/authorize/ProxyUsers.java#L52]
which initializes proxy configuration from the default HBase configuration files (and HBase
configuration files are never added to the static default configuration source list).

To workaround this, user must add these to one of the hadoop default properties (core-site.xml).

We can fix this by calling {{ProxyUsers.refreshSuperUserGroupsConfiguration(conf);}} in the
REST server initialization code, where {{conf}} is created as {{Configuration conf = HBaseConfiguration.create();}}.

Does it make sense? If yes, will create a JIRA and attach the patch.
