Subject [jira] [Commented] (ZOOKEEPER-2014) Only admin should be allowed to reconfig a cluster
Date Fri, 04 Nov 2016 05:04:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-2014?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15635265#comment-15635265

Benjamin Reed commented on ZOOKEEPER-2014:
------------------------------------------

ah that makes sense. i didn't dig deep enough :) it is sad that an exception "that should
never happen" has such a big impact on the code. shouldn't we have thrown a runtime exception?
i think it would have eliminated a lot of this patch...

this is just an observation not a vote :)

> ZOOKEEPER-107 introduces reconfiguration support via the reconfig() call. We should,
at the very least, ensure that only the Admin can reconfigure a cluster. Perhaps restricting
access to /zookeeper/config as well, though this is debatable. Surely one could ensure Admin
only access via an ACL, but that would leave everyone who doesn't use ACLs unprotected. We
could also force a default ACL to make it a bit more consistent (maybe).
> Finally, making reconfig() only available to Admins means they have to run with zookeeper.DigestAuthenticationProvider.superDigest
(which I am not sure if everyone does, or how would it work with other authentication providers).
