Elliott Clark commented on HBASE-14169:
---------------------------------------

Isn't this the same as the update config stuff ? Why not just handle it the same way ?

> For deployments that use security. User impersonation (AKA doAs()) is needed for some
services (ie Stargate, thriftserver, Oozie, etc). Impersonation definitions are defined in
a xml config file and read and cached by the ProxyUsers class. Calling this api will refresh
cached information, eliminating the need to restart the master/regionserver whenever the configuration
is changed. 
> Implementation just adds another method to AccessControlService.
