Subject [jira] [Commented] (SENTRY-110) Add user's home directory as implied URI access
Date Tue, 04 Feb 2014 20:30:11 GMT

Ben Spivey commented on SENTRY-110:
-----------------------------------

Good point Brock.  Having an "opt-in" configuration makes better sense than an "opt-out" when
you are talking about relaxing some security restrictions.

> 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.
