Date Wed, 16 Sep 2009 04:32:57 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-78?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12755876#action_12755876

Min Zhou commented on HIVE-78:

we will take over this issue, it would be finished in two weeks.  Here are the sql statements
will be added:

Metadata is stored at some sort of persistent media such as mysql DBMS through jdo.  We will
add three tables for this issue, they are USER, DBS_PRIV, TABLES_PRIV. Privileges can be granted
at several levels, each table above are corresponding to a privilege level. 
#  Global level
Global privileges apply to all databases on a given server. These privileges are stored in
the USER table. GRANT ALL ON *.* and REVOKE ALL ON *.* grant and revoke only global privileges.

GRANT ALL ON *.* TO 'someuser';
GRANT SELECT, INSERT ON *.* TO 'someuser';

#  Database level
Database privileges apply to all objects in a given database. These privileges are stored
in the DBS_PRIV table. GRANT ALL ON db_name.* and REVOKE ALL ON db_name.* grant and revoke
only database privileges. 
GRANT ALL ON mydb.* TO 'someuser';
GRANT SELECT, INSERT ON mydb.* TO 'someuser';
Although we can't create DBs currently,  it would take a reserved place till hive support.

# Table level
Table privileges apply to all columns in a given table. These privileges are stored in the
TABLES_PRIV table. GRANT ALL ON db_name.tbl_name and REVOKE ALL ON db_name.tbl_name grant
and revoke only table privileges. 
GRANT ALL ON mydb.mytbl TO 'someuser';
GRANT SELECT, INSERT ON mydb.mytbl TO 'someuser';

Hive account information is stored in USER table, includes username, password and kinds of
privileges. User who has been granted any privilege to, such as select/insert/drop on a particular
table, always have a right to show that table.
