Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-15942) User with 'RWX' permission of the table should be able to describe the table
Date Thu, 02 Jun 2016 17:36:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-15942?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15312733#comment-15312733

Matteo Bertozzi commented on HBASE-15942:

I haven't checked the patch yet (I'll promise I'll do that later). 
the only reason we have only ADMIN/CREATE able to describe the table is because we don't want
to leak the descriptor to people that has only permission to read/write a single qualifier.

there may also be a reason that we don't want to expose some "config" passed to the table
descriptors to the user.
for the second we may need to add filtering to the various getters we have in HTD/HCD. and
maybe not worth at this point?
for the first one in theory is possible to have users that have access to every cfs see the
descriptor (which I guess is what your patch does, again I'll give it a look at it later).

> Currently only the user who has 'ADMIN' or 'CREATE' permission could describe the table
(via shell), it brings some inconvenience and confusion to those uses who have RWX permission
since they couldn't describe the table to get the schema.
