-----------------------------------

             Summary: HBase shell doesn't allow deleting of a cell by user with W-only permissions
to it
                 Key: HBASE-12120
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-12120
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: shell
            Reporter: Dima Spivak


If cell-level ACLs are used to give a user "W" permissions to a cell, they should be able
to delete that cell. In testing the Java API, I've confirmed that this is respected. Using
the HBase shell, however, a user trying to delete a cell to which they don't have read permissions
results in a "Row Not Found" error. 

[~mbertozzi] tracked this down to a change introduced by HBASE-5837 wherein an attempt is
made to get the cell before deleting it to confirm that it exists.
