      Description

      The HDFS permissions guide still refers to dfs.web.ugi, and there are some vestiges in the code, but it no longer works post-security.

      We should either remove the vestiges entirely and document the servletfilter approach to securing the web UI, or preferably, we could make the StaticUserWebFilter (HADOOP-6832) respect this configuration parameter (possibly with deprecation).

          Essentially fixed. Closing.

          Right now it seems to be supported when security is disabled, but not when enabled. I think best route is to just make the static web user plugin from 6832 configurable.

          will this change be backward compatible?
