Subject [jira] [Created] (DRILL-3467) Restrict 'show databases' based on underlying permissions.
Date Tue, 07 Jul 2015 18:20:04 GMT
Andy Pernsteiner created DRILL-3467:

             Summary: Restrict 'show databases' based on underlying permissions.
                 Key: DRILL-3467
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DRILL-3467
             Project: Apache Drill
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Metadata
            Reporter: Andy Pernsteiner
            Assignee: Steven Phillips

Ideally, an administrator would have the ability to restrict the visibility of workspaces
based on the FS permissions that underly those workspaces. Currently it appears we only honor
this for 'show tables' , but not for 'show databases'.
Without this functionality (or something that gives an equivalent result), users will be able
to see any and all workspaces, including ones which administrators may wish to keep 'invisible'.
Additionally, when having hundreds (or potentially thousands) of users, seeing all workspaces
via 'show databases' is likely to make it difficult for end-users to know what they can and
cannot access.
