Chris Nauroth commented on HADOOP-13081:
----------------------------------------

Thank you, Sergey.

I think Daryn is asserting that you could potentially achieve this by running 
the portion of code that needs Kerberos auth inside one UGI.doAs, and then run 
the portion of code that needs delegation token auth inside a different 
UGI.doAs, where that second UGI was built with {{createRemoteUser}} and 
{{addToken}}.  Would that work, or is there some reason that the actions can't 
be separated, and you really need both the Kerberos credentials and the 
delegation token all at once in a single UGI.doAs?

> We have a scenario where we log in with kerberos as a certain user for some 
> tasks, but also want to add tokens to the resulting UGI that would be 
> specific to each task. We don't want to authenticate with kerberos for every 
> task.
> I am not sure how this can be accomplished with the existing UGI interface. 
> Perhaps some clone method would be helpful, similar to createProxyUser minus 
> the proxy stuff; or it could just relogin anew from ticket cache. 
> getUGIFromTicketCache seems like the best option in existing code, but there 
> doesn't appear to be a consistent way of handling ticket cache location - the 
> above method, that I only see called in test, is using a config setting that 
> is not used anywhere else, and the env variable for the location that is used 
> in the main ticket cache related methods is not set uniformly on all paths - 
> therefore, trying to find the correct ticket cache and passing it via the 
> config setting to getUGIFromTicketCache seems even hackier than doing the 
> clone via reflection ;) Moreover, getUGIFromTicketCache ignores the user 
> parameter on the main path - it logs a warning for multiple principals and 
> then logs in with first available.
