Subject [jira] [Commented] (FALCON-16) Secure Oozie client interface
Date Tue, 11 Jun 2013 22:15:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FALCON-16?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13680752#comment-13680752

Venkatesh Seetharam commented on FALCON-16:

[~sriksun] Thanks for your comments. Yes, I remember speaking to you about this but largely
missed it in the code. 

There are a few options that come to my mind:

* Move this to falcon and execute it in process with in falcon as part of consuming the message
as you suggested which will burden falcon
* Instead of an in process execution, how about launching yet another workflow to move logs
on behalf of the user which will keep falcon light but makes it a burden on oozie
* Add a feature in oozie to capture logs as part of an action or a workflow with a path and
it copies the job logs automatically. Sweet huh? :-)
* This may be a stretch but could add delegation token based authentication in Oozie. FalconPostProcessing
action is launched as a mapper with delegation token checked out by oozie and we could send
that to authenticate with oozie and get access.  

We also need to address a related issue of capturing job metrics, specifically counters and
persist 'em as well.

How about commenting that part in this patch and addressing that in a separate jira issue
since it is a task on its own. That way I can get closure on security and work on this as
a separate task. 

Makes sense?
