Subject [Impala-ASF-CR] IMPALA-5582: Store sentry privileges in lower case
Date Thu, 20 Jul 2017 18:52:08 GMT
Hello Impala Public Jenkins, Michael Brown, Bharath Vissapragada, Matthew Jacobs,

I'd like you to reexamine a change.  Please visit

to look at the new patch set (#10).

Change subject: IMPALA-5582: Store sentry privileges in lower case

IMPALA-5582: Store sentry privileges in lower case

Privileges granted to a role assigned to a db/table whose name
contains upper case characters can disappear after a few seconds.
A privilege is inserted into the catalogObjectCache using a key
that uses the db/table name. The key gets converted to a lower
case before inserting.
Privilege name returned by sentryProxy is always lower case,
which might not match the privilegeName built in the catalog.
This triggers an update of the catalog object followed by a
removal of the old object. Since they both use the same key
in lower case it ends up deleting the newly updated object.

This change also adds a new catalogd startup option
to configure the frequency at which catalogd polls the sentry service
to update any policy changes. The default value is 60 seconds.

Added a test which adds select privileges to 3 tables and dbs specified
in lower case, upper case and mixed case. The test verifies that the
privileges on the 3 tables do not disappear on a sentry update.
