Subject [jira] [Commented] (RANGER-1252) Policy lookup does not honor the case sensitivity flag of resources
Date Thu, 26 Jan 2017 01:47:26 GMT

Yan commented on RANGER-1252:
-----------------------------

[~vperiasamy] Thanks for reviewing the patch. On the configuration side, I think it's probably
good to let the case sensitivity flag, as specified in the ResourceDef in ServiceDef, to determine
the case sensitivity check during the search. Otherwise even a hit in search could not be
useful to the user. A bottom line is that the flag should serve as a single-point-of-truth
for this type of case-sensitivity-based searches.  Please let me know your thoughts.

> For case insensitive Hive db/table names, the public API's policy lookup does not hit
the case insensitive names. For instance, the following curl command:
> curl -iv -u admin:admin -H "Content-type:application/json" -X GET http://11.22.33.444:6080/service/public/api/policy?databases=db1&tables=table1
> returns different results from running the following command using different cases in
names:
> curl -iv -u admin:admin -H "Content-type:application/json" -X GET http://11.22.33.444:6080/service/public/api/policy?databases=DB1&tables=TABLE1
> if there exists such a Hive table db1/table1 in the metastore.
