maprlogin Command Examples

Describes common scenarios associated with maprlogin usage.

Generating and Displaying User Ticket

[Password for user 'juser' at cluster 'my.cluster.com': ] 
MapR credentials of user 'juser' for cluster 'my.cluster.com' 
are written to '/tmp/maprticket_1000'
Display the ticket for the current user. Sample output is shown below.
$ maprlogin print
Opening keyfile /tmp/maprticket_1000
my.cluster.com: user = juser, 
created = 'Mon Sep 17 08:30:26 PDT 2018', expires = 'Mon Oct 01 08:30:26 PDT 2018', 
RenewalTill = 'Wed Oct 17 08:30:26 PDT 2018', uid = 20001, gids = 54261, 
CanImpersonate = false 

Generating and Displaying mapr User Ticket

Generate a ticket for the mapr user:

# su mapr
$ maprlogin password
[Password for user 'mapr' at cluster 'test.cluster.com': ] 
MapR credentials of user 'mapr' for cluster 'test.cluster.com' 
are written to '/tmp/maprticket_5000'
Display the ticket for the current user. Sample output is shown below.
$ maprlogin print
Opening keyfile /tmp/maprticket_5000
test.cluster.com: user = mapr, created = 'Mon Sep 17 09:18:19 PDT 2018', 
expires = 'Mon Oct 01 09:18:19 PDT 2018', RenewalTill = 'Wed Oct 17 09:18:19 PDT 2018', 
uid = 5000, gids = 5000, 0, 5001, CanImpersonate = true

Generating and Displaying Service Ticket

Generate a service ticket, longlived_ticket, in /tmp for maprUser1:

$ maprlogin generateticket -type service -out /tmp/ticketwithduration 
-duration 30:0:0 -renewal 90:0:0 -user maprUser1
MapR credentials of user 'maprUser1' for cluster 'JSKCluster129_secure' 
are written to '/tmp/longlived_ticket'

Display the service ticket in a specified location:

$ maprlogin print -ticketfile /tmp/ticketwithduration
Opening keyfile /tmp/ticketwithduration
JSKCluster129_secure: user = maprUser1, 
created = 'Tue Jun 14 11:12:01 PDT 2017', expires = 'Thu Jul 14 11:12:01 PDT 2017', 
RenewalTill = 'Mon Sep 12 11:12:01 PDT 2017', 
uid = 0, gids = 0, CanImpersonate = false

Generating and Printing Service with Impersonation Ticket

Generate a service with impersonation ticket (in /var/tmp) for maprUser1:

$ maprlogin generateticket -type servicewithimpersonation -user maprUser1 
-out /var/tmp/impersonationTicketMapRuser1

After generating the ticket, ensure that maprUser1 has read permissions on the ticket. If you move the ticketfile to a different location, set the $MAPR_TICKETFILE_LOCATION environment variable.

Display the service with impersonation ticket in the specified location:

$ maprlogin print -ticketfile /var/tmp/impersonationTcketMaprUser1
Opening keyfile /var/tmp/impersonationTcketMaprUser1
JSKCluster129_secure: user = maprUser1, 
created = 'Mon Apr 18 13:46:38 PDT 2017', expires = 'Mon May 02 13:46:38 PDT 2017', 
RenewalTill = 'Wed May 18 13:46:38 PDT 2017', 
uid = 501, gids = 502, CanImpersonate = true

Generating and Printing a Tenant Ticket

Generate a tenant ticket (in /var/tmp) for tenantUser1:

$ maprlogin generateticket -type tenant -ips ipaddress1,ipaddress2,ipaddress3 
-cluster myCluster -user tenantUser1 -out /var/tmp/

Display the tenant ticket in the specified location:

$ maprlogin print -ticketfile /var/tmp/tenant_user_ticket
Opening keyfile /user/cAdmin/tenant_user_ticket.txt
tenantHost: user = tenantUser1, 
created = 'Mon Jul 11 07:14:53 UTC 2017', expires = 'Mon Jul 11 07:14:53 UTC 12017', 
RenewalTill = 'Mon Jul 11 07:14:53 UTC 12017', 
uid = 500, gids = 500, 42, CanImpersonate = true, tenant = true

Generating and Displaying Cross-Cluster Ticket

Generate a cross-cluster ticket (in /tmp) for maprUser1:

$ maprlogin generateticket -type crosscluster -out /tmp/CrossClusterTicket -user maprUser1
MapR credentials of user 'maprUser1' for cluster 'JSKCluster128_secure' 
are written to '/tmp/CrossClusterTicket'

Display the contents of a cross-cluster ticket in the specified location:

$ maprlogin print -ticketfile /tmp/crossclusterTicket
Opening keyfile /tmp/crossclusterTicket
ClusterSecure: user = root, 
created = 'Fri May 27 14:29:40 PDT 2017', expires = 'Fri May 27 14:29:40 PDT 12017', 
RenewalTill = 'Fri May 27 14:29:40 PDT 12017', 
uid = 0, gids = 0, CanImpersonate = false

Running an Authentication Test

authtest: This troubleshooting option simulates the behavior of the runtime during authentication, going through the authentication flow.

Options: [ -cluster ] Specifies the name of the cluster.

Ending a Session Before the Ticket Expires

end or logout: Destroys tickets and logs out.

Options: [ -cluster ] Specifies the name of the cluster. By default, deletes all tickets for all clusters.

Renewing a Ticket Before It Expires

renew: Renews an existing ticket for a specified time period.

Options:
  • [ -cluster ] - Specifies the name of the cluster.
  • [ -duration ] - Specifies the ticket duration.

The duration you specify must be valid for the ticket in question, given the original -renewal value for the ticket and the life of the ticket when the renew command is run:

  • You cannot renew a ticket that has already expired.
  • You can renew the same ticket multiple times.
  • The renewal period (or periods) cannot exceed the available time left for the ticket.

For example, assume that a ticket is created with a duration of 10 days and a renewal of 30 days:

maprlogin password -duration 10:0:0 -renewal 30:0:0
  • On the 11th day, the ticket expires and cannot be renewed at all.
  • On the 9th day, you can renew the ticket for any number of days up to a maximum of 21.
  • On the 23rd day, you can renew the ticket for any number of days up to a maximum of 7.

Example: Renew a ticket and display the renewed ticket in the specified location:

$ maprlogin renew -out /tmp/RenewedsecureClusterTicket 
-ticketfile /tmp/secureClusterTicket -duration 1:0:0

$ maprlogin print -ticketfile /tmp/RenewedsecureClusterTicket
Opening keyfile /tmp/RenewedsecureClusterTicket
JSKCluster129_secure: user = root, 
created = 'Tue Jun 07 11:53:29 PDT 2017', 
expires = 'Wed Jun 08 11:56:56 PDT 2017', 
RenewalTill = 'Thu Jul 07 11:53:29 PDT 2017', 
uid = 0, gids = 0, CanImpersonate = false
