Hive Security

  • #50343
    bruno bonnin


    I want to configure the security of Hive : is there a admin user in Hive ? It seems that anybody can change its privileges (grant all …) ! Can you confirm this ?
    Of course, as Hive uses HDFS for the storing database and tables, it can be ok, but it is a little bit strange to let anybody configure its privileges , isn’t it ?
