Subject [jira] [Updated] (HBASE-12644) Visibility Labels: issue with storing super users in labels table
Date Tue, 16 Dec 2014 19:09:14 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-12644?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Ted Yu updated HBASE-12644:
---------------------------
    Release Note: 
The system visibility label authorization for super users will no longer be persisted in hbase:labels
table. Super users will be determined at server startup time. They will have all the permissions
for Visibility labels.
If you have a prior deployment that had super users' system label persisted in hbase:labels,
you can clean up by invoking the shell command 'clear_auths'.
For example: clear_auths 'old_superuser', 'system'
This is particularly necessary when you change super users, i.e. a previous super user is
no longer a super user.

I filled Release Note with Jerry's description.

When you click on 'Edit' button, you should find 'Release Note' field under 'Hadoop Flags'
field.

Thanks

> Super users have all the permissions for ACL and Visibility labels.
> They are defined in hbase-site.xml.
> Currently in VisibilityController, we persist super user with their system permission
in hbase:labels.
> This makes change in super user difficult.
> There are two issues:
> In the current DefaultVisibilityLabelServiceImpl.addSystemLabel, we only add super user
when we initially create the 'system' label.
> No additional update after that even if super user changed. See code for details.
>  
> Additionally, there is no mechanism to remove any super user from the labels table.
>  
> We probably should not persist super users in the labels table.
> They are in hbase-site.xml and can just stay in labelsCache and used from labelsCache
after retrieval by Visibility Controller.
