Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-78) Authorization infrastructure for Hive
Date Mon, 21 Sep 2009 19:13:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-78?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12757998#action_12757998

Namit Jain commented on HIVE-78:

Looking at Min's patch createuser-v1.patch, 

I dont think we need create user/drop user etc. at all.

As Edward mentioned before,
When HWI starts the session on behalf of the user it runs "SET hadoop.ugi={what user entered
in the test box}" at that point if the user initiates a hive job, the output of that job should
be files owned by that user. I am pretty sure the code in QL just chown's the files at job
end or perhaps the entire job runs as that user (I cant remember).

the user is always available from the environment and for now, let us assume that all authorizations
happen to that user.
