Subject [jira] [Commented] (SENTRY-110) Add user's home directory as implied URI access
Date Tue, 04 Feb 2014 20:24:09 GMT

Brock Noland commented on SENTRY-110:
-------------------------------------

Thank you Jeff! Thinking about this more, I think we should have an option to enable this
feature. The reason being that it makes the system more permissive which some users might
not be aware of when upgrading. Configuration management tools can make this easy to enable.

> It would be great if by default users are granted access to their own home directory
(/user/<username>) without having an administrator grant them URI access.  Explicit
access does not scale well and requires frequent policy file changes.  Having this feature
would allow users to export query results as files in their home directory on HDFS.
> As part of this, there should be a global configuration to disable this feature.
