Subject [jira] [Created] (SENTRY-136) Thrift request structs should include the groupName rather than userName
Date Sat, 08 Mar 2014 00:38:48 GMT
Shreepadma Venugopalan created SENTRY-136:
---------------------------------------------

             Summary: Thrift request structs should include the groupName rather than userName
                 Key: SENTRY-136
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SENTRY-136
             Project: Sentry
          Issue Type: Sub-task
            Reporter: Shreepadma Venugopalan


Today, thrift request structs use the userName of the user on whose behalf the request is
performed. Instead, we should include the list of groups to which the user belongs. Benefits,

a) user-group resolution can be restricted to the client i.e., impala, hs2, solr etc and hence
sentry service doesn't have to resolve the mapping.

b) user-group mapping doesn't have to present on the node that's hosting the sentry service.
