    • Release Note:
      When configuring proxy users and hosts, the special wildcard value "*" may be specified to match any host or any user.

      Description

      There are some cases where the full tightness of the ProxyUsers configuration is not required or available – for example, not all users of oozie may share a common "oozie-users" group, and the operators would prefer to allow oozie on a given host to act proxy for any user. We should allow the operator to specify a wildcard for hosts or groups in the proxyuser configurations.
