Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
.The `--inconsistent-index` option has been restricted Using the `--inconsistent-index` option with the `radosgw-admin bucket rm` command could cause corruption of the bucket index if the command failed or was stopped. With this update, usage of `--inconsistent-index` requires a confirmation from users (the `--yes-i-really-mean-it` option), and a warning is printed when attempting to use this option.

Orit would you please cherry-pick this to luminous for Ceph v12.2.1?
Comment 10 Ramakrishnan Periyasamy 2017-10-17 05:29:33 EDT
Moving this bug to Verified state. Command output when tried to purge objects using "--inconsistent-index" param.

[ubuntu@host006 ~]$ sudo radosgw-admin --cluster qetest bucket rm --purge-objects --bypass-gc --inconsistent-index --bucket=test
using --inconsistent_index can corrupt the bucket index 
do you really mean it? (requires --yes-i-really-mean-it)
