Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-10880) Move HTTP delegation tokens out of URL querystring to a header
Date Thu, 28 Aug 2014 09:39:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-10880?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14113605#comment-14113605

Aaron T. Myers commented on HADOOP-10880:

Latest patch looks pretty good to me. Just a few small comments:

# Lower-case this "O", and upper-case this "f": "useQueryStringforDelegationTOken"
# This comment about the default behavior seems inaccurate, given that the default value for
"useQueryStringforDelegationTOken" is "true": 
+   * By default it is transmitted using the
+   * {@link DelegationTokenAuthenticator#DELEGATION_TOKEN_HEADER} HTTP header.
# Recommend renaming "getUseQueryStringForDelegationToken" to "shouldUseQueryStringForDelegationToken"
or perhaps just "useQueryStringForDelegationToken".

+1 once these are addressed.

>    Affects Versions: 2.4.1

> Following up on a discussion in HADOOP-10799.
> Because URLs are often logged, delegation tokens may end up in LOG files while they are
still valid. 
> We should move the tokens to a header.
> We should still support tokens in the querystring for backwards compatibility.
