Chris Nauroth commented on HADOOP-13728:

Yes, I was thinking hard-coded aliases, just to cover the most commonly used 
credential providers.  I think an alias configuration file, or anything like 
the file system scheme configuration flexibility, would be over-engineering.  
We aren't seeing custom credential providers as a typical use case so far, so I 
think it's fine to keep using full class names in the rare case that someone 
needs that.

> S3A can support short user-friendly aliases for configuration of credential 
> providers.

>             Project: Hadoop Common
>          Issue Type: Sub-task
>          Components: fs/s3
>            Reporter: Chris Nauroth
>            Priority: Minor
> This issue proposes to support configuration of the S3A credential provider 
> chain using short aliases to refer to the common credential providers in 
> addition to allowing full class names.  Supporting short aliases would 
> provide a simpler operations experience for the most common cases.
