SQuirrel client allows any user to connect on phoenix jdbc

Explorer

Hello guys,

SQuirrel client allows phoenix jdbc connection using any user and password, but for security reasons, this behaviour is misleading. Is there a way to just disable the login prompt on squirrel? Or is there other authentication we can use to connect to phoenix?

You can enable kerberos and hbase Acl's to have the access control and let the authorised users to connect to phoenix.

I see but is it a normal behaviour for squirrel to let any user/password access phoenix?

you can't authenticate using username and password in Phoenix/HBase/HDFS, the only way is to go through kerberos authentication.
