.Simplified creation of CephFS client keyring A new command, `ceph fs authorize`, is now supported. The command simplifies creation of `cephx` capabilities for a Ceph File System (CephFS) client user. For example, to grant the `client.1` user read and write access to MDS nodes and read access to Monitor and OSD nodes on a Ceph File System named `cephfs`: ---- # ceph fs authorize cephfs client.1 rw r ---- Use this command only when creating new users. It is not possible to modify existing users with `ceph fs authorize`.

Description John Spray 2017-06-26 09:50:49 UTC
Instead of user having to manually write out auth caps syntax, provide a command that allows them to grant access to a client ID by filesystem name.

We need a new upstream point release since this PR landed after v12.1.2 was tagged.

The caps created by the command

[ubuntu@host028 ~]$ sudo ceph --cluster qetest fs authorize cephfs client.fs rw r
	key = AQDO1MJZU4JtOBAAvBocj+CzsNDp3Cogk2FsMw==

[ubuntu@host028 ~]$ sudo ceph --cluster qetest auth get client.fs
exported keyring for client.fs
	key = AQDO1MJZU4JtOBAAvBocj+CzsNDp3Cogk2FsMw==
	caps mds = "allow r path=rw"
	caps mon = "allow r"
	caps osd = "allow r pool=cephfs_data"

Command: ceph fs authorize <fs_name> <entity> <caps>
