Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1680) Atomic add and remove of authorizations
Date Tue, 03 Sep 2013 21:47:51 GMT


John Vines commented on ACCUMULO-1680:

In lieu of new shell commands, another option could be to support +auth and -auth for add/remove.

>             Fix For: 1.6.0
> Currently, adding and removing an auth presents a race condition because of the two separate
calls required to get, modify, then set the authorizations for a user.  
> Instead, it should be possible to add or remove one or more auths without there being
a race condition.
> I also propose adding two new commands to the shell to expose this functionality.  
> It appears to be that this is not a difficult feature to add, by making use of  ZooReaderWriter.mutate()
in the FATE packages.  I think the bulk of the work will be in changing the various interfaces
(shell and programmatically) to expose this functionality.
> I would like to do this work and I'm a accumulo newbie, so any guidance would be appreciated.
