Subject [jira] [Created] (RANGER-693) HDFS folder permission exclusively managed my Ranger
Date Mon, 12 Oct 2015 22:14:05 GMT
Don Bosco Durai created RANGER-693:

             Summary: HDFS folder permission exclusively managed my Ranger
                 Key: RANGER-693
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RANGER-693
             Project: Ranger
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 0.5.1
            Reporter: Don Bosco Durai
             Fix For: 0.6.0

In HDFS plugin, if there are no policies for the file/folder, then Ranger falls backs to HDFS
file/folder permission.

While this is very convenient, but in some cases it is desirable that only Ranger manages
the policies. Good examples are folders like /apps/hive/warehouse or some user folders where
it is better that Ranger manages the entire permission.

One suggestion is to mark folders which will be managed by Ranger. For these folders, ignore
all permissions and ownership set at the HDFS file/folder level.

This will be a very useful feature for Ranger.
