Subject [jira] [Commented] (SENTRY-778) CredentialProvider for Sentry DB password
Date Wed, 24 Jun 2015 02:36:42 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SENTRY-778?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14598765#comment-14598765

Colin Ma commented on SENTRY-778:
---------------------------------

I think there should be a test case for this improvement, get the CredentialProvider from
CredentialProviderFactory, then createCredentialEntry, check the result.

> It would be good if we supported Hadoop's {{CredentialProvider}} so that the passwords
can be specified in an external encrypted file.  The file can be prepared as described [here|http://hadoop.apache.org/docs/r2.7.0/hadoop-project-dist/hadoop-common/CommandsManual.html#credential]
in the Hadoop docs.
