Date Thu, 04 Feb 2016 16:48:39 GMT


Chaoyu Tang commented on HIVE-12885:

Chatted with Naveen offline in details about the implementation. It seems that he has covered
all the cases so far we have run into and addressed the known backward compatibility issues.

> Currently Hive's LDAP Atn provider assumes certain defaults to keep its configuration
> 1) One of the assumptions is the presence of an attribute "distinguishedName". In certain
non-standard LDAP implementations, this attribute may not be available. So instead of basing
all ldap searches on this attribute, getNameInNamespace() returns the same value. So this
API is to be used instead.

However, certain LDAP implementations, by default, only allow the full DN to be used, just
short user names are not permitted. We will need to be able to support short names too when
hive configuration only has "BaseDN" specified (not userDNPatterns). So instead of hard-coding
"uid" or "CN" as keys for the short usernames, it probably better to make this a configurable
