Subject [jira] [Created] (HAWQ-1036) Support user impersonation in HAWQ
Date Tue, 30 Aug 2016 14:27:21 GMT
Alastair "Bell" Turner created HAWQ-1036:

             Summary: Support user impersonation in HAWQ
                 Key: HAWQ-1036
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HAWQ-1036
             Project: Apache HAWQ
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Alastair "Bell" Turner
            Assignee: Lei Chang

Currently HAWQ executes all queries as the user running the HAWQ process or the user running
the PXF process, not as the user who issued the query via ODBC/JDBC/... This restricts the
options available for integrating with existing security defined in HDFS, Hive, etc.

Impersonation provides an alternative Ranger integration (as discussed in HAWQ-256 ) for consistent
security across HAWQ, HDFS, Hive...
