Subject [jira] [Commented] (RANGER-1958) [HBase] Implement getUserPermissions API of AccessControlService.Interface to allow clients to access HBase permissions stored in Ranger

Ankit Singhal commented on RANGER-1958:
---------------------------------------

bq. do you have patch ready for this?
Not yet, but I can check if I can put up something soon.
 
bq. But incase that is a long way to go and want to leverage on RangerHBasePlugin what is
the expected implementation on getUserPernissions API? Could you please elaborate on the Phoenix
request and what is expected out from Ranger? That will help us to move forward on this.

getUserPermissions API is expected to return all permission of the requesting user on the
particular resource(table/namespace/global only) specified in the request.

> We have added the support of ACLs in Phoenix as part of PHOENIX-4198. Currently, the
implementation relies on some of the APIs provided by AccessControlService.Interface to get
the user permission of the table but we see that the API "AccessControlService.Interface#getUserPermissions"
 is not yet implemented in Ranger authorization module for HBase and thus, we are unable to
access permissions stored for HBase Table in Phoenix.
> In class RangerAuthorizationCoprocessor
> {code}
> @Override
> 	public void getUserPermissions(RpcController controller, AccessControlProtos.GetUserPermissionsRequest
request, RpcCallback<AccessControlProtos.GetUserPermissionsResponse> done) {
> 		LOG.debug("getUserPermissions(): ");
> 	}
> {code}
> If we just implement this API, we can leverage the current HBase Ranger plugin for Phoenix
too.
> Although the long-term solution for Ranger could be to implement the coprocessor hooks
for Phoenix as how it has been done for HBase so that we can also authorize new entities like
VIEW, SEQUENCES, FUNCTIONs  (which can not be supported with native HBase ACLs) along with
Table and Schema. 
> Let me know your thoughts, I can try to put up a patch soon.
