Ben Podgursky commented on YARN-1495:
-------------------------------------

Hi,

Are there any plans to let users move jobs between queues via the web UI, like 
with the MR1 fair scheduler?  We found this feature very useful.

> This is an umbrella JIRA for work needed to allow moving YARN applications 
> from one queue to another.  The work will consist of additions in the command 
> line options, additions in the client RM protocol, and changes in the 
> schedulers to support this.
> I have a picture of how this should function in the Fair Scheduler, but I'm 
> not familiar enough with the Capacity Scheduler for the same there.  
> Ultimately, the decision to whether an application can be moved should go 
> down to the scheduler - some schedulers may wish not to support this at all.  
> However, schedulers that do support it should share some common semantics 
> around ACLs and what happens to running containers.
> Here is how I see the general semantics working out:
> * A move request is issued by the client.  After it gets past ACLs, the 
> scheduler checks whether executing the move will violate any constraints. For 
> the Fair Scheduler, these would be queue maxRunningApps and queue 
> maxResources constraints
> * All running containers are transferred from the old queue to the new queue
> * All outstanding requests are transferred from the old queue to the new queue
> Here is I see the ACLs of this working out:
> * To move an app from a queue a user must have modify access on the app or 
> administer access on the queue
> * To move an app to a queue a user must have submit access on the queue or 
> administer access on the queue
