Subject [jira] [Commented] (RANGER-1138) Investigate using a scheduler to download policies to the plugins
Date Mon, 05 Sep 2016 13:29:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RANGER-1138?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15464997#comment-15464997

Nigel Jones commented on RANGER-1138:

In addition to allowing more flexibility as to the timing of policy download, it could also
be worth considering
 a) An event based mechanism to push policies to plugins for example via kafka
 b) the plugin persisting the current policy locally, with the option of using this at service
startup if the new policy cannot be downloaded [adds resilience]

> This task is to investigate using a scheduler (i.e. Quartz) to download policies to the
plugins. Currently Ranger uses the PolicyRefresher class, which is extremely basic. An implementation
based on Quartz would allow to download polices daily, weekly, etc etc according to a schedule.
