Subject [jira] [Created] (HIVE-5635) WebHCatJTShim23 ignores security/user context
Date Thu, 24 Oct 2013 00:33:41 GMT
Eugene Koifman created HIVE-5635:

             Summary: WebHCatJTShim23 ignores security/user context
                 Key: HIVE-5635
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: WebHCat
    Affects Versions: 0.12.0
            Reporter: Eugene Koifman
            Assignee: Eugene Koifman

WebHCatJTShim23 takes UserGroupInformation object as argument (which represents the user make
the call to WebHCat or doAs user) but ignores.

WebHCatJTShim20S uses the UserGroupInformation

This is inconsistent and may be a security hole because in with Hadoop 2 the  methods on WebHCatJTShim
are likely running with 'hcat' as the user context.
