Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-78) Authentication infrastructure for Hive
Date Wed, 15 Apr 2009 18:56:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-78?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12699313#action_12699313

Edward Capriolo commented on HIVE-78:
-------------------------------------

All those points make sense. 

>>1. I am not sure what AS is used for.
I am thinking AS is the way to name the PermissionSet. Imagine a rule like this:
{noformat}
GRANT WITH_GRANT,RC, ON '*' TO 'USER1','USER2' AS my_permission
{noformat}
At some point 'USER3' might become an administrator. It would be nice to issue a command like:
 
{noformat}
ALTER GRANT my_permission add USER 'USER3'
{noformat}

It also makes the grant self documenting.
