WebHCat E2E tests when running against a ssl enabled webhdfs url fails.
NO PRECOMMIT TESTS
The patch appends a "-k" to the curl command when making requests to https urls. The option allows curl to make insecure ssl connections and transfers.
Looks good to me from reading up "man curl" :
(SSL) This option explicitly allows curl to perform "insecure" SSL connections and transfers. All SSL connections are attempted to be
made secure by using the CA certificate bundle installed by default. This makes all connections considered "insecure" fail unless
-k/--insecure is used.
See this online resource for further details: http://curl.haxx.se/docs/sslcerts.html
Committed to trunk, Thanks, Deepesh! Setting the fix version to 0.14.
Harish Butani, Deepesh would like to get this included in 0.13 as well. I think it makes sense for inclusion, since it's needed to allow our E2E tests to run in a secure environment. Could we backport this?
+1 for 0.13
Thanks Harish and Deepesh, committed to 0.13.
This has been fixed in 0.14 release. Please open new jira if you see any issues.
