Summary: Refactor KylinConfig so that all the default configurations are hidden in kylin-defaults.properties
URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KYLIN-2659 Project: Kylin
Issue Type: Improvement
Reporter: hongbin ma
Assignee: hongbin ma
Currently we ship a conf/kylin.properties file with a lot of configuration overrides. This is not a standard approach compared with other projects like hadoop or spark.
It's better to have a kylin-defaults.properties file to hide all the default configurations, users will only have to override necessary configurations in a blank kylin.properties.
After the refactor, a config might be override by the following precedence:
1. KV in kylin.properties.override, which is more of a "secret feature", never documented.
2. KV in kylin.properties, users are suggested to override configs here
3. KV in kylin-defaults.properties, readonly to users
4. KV in KylinConfigBase, readonly to users
The refactor will be backward compatible
