Subject [jira] [Created] (FLUME-770) setting FLUME_IDENT_STRING based on $USER is not robust
Date Mon, 03 Oct 2011 20:56:34 GMT
setting FLUME_IDENT_STRING based on $USER is not robust
-------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: FLUME-770
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLUME-770
             Project: Flume
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Shell
    Affects Versions: v0.9.4
            Reporter: Roman Shaposhnik
            Assignee: Roman Shaposhnik
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: v0.9.5


The following bit of code from flume-daemon.sh fails to produce the correct result under sudo-type
of execution:

{noformat}
if [ "$FLUME_IDENT_STRING" = "" ]; then
  export FLUME_IDENT_STRING="$USER"
fi
{noformat}

This is because $USER is not always set for shell. A more robust solution would be to use
the output of id -nu
