Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-78) Authentication infrastructure for Hive
Date Wed, 15 Apr 2009 16:12:15 GMT


Prasad Chakka commented on HIVE-78:

This is great. I have few questions..
1) What would be the syntax to create user/passwd combos and logging in?
2) Are the permissions stored in metastore are per user or per table or a combo? 
3) Do we really need groups? I don't think MySQL implements groups.
4) I am totally naive in authentication systems, but I am assuming only access details are
stored in metastore and authentication is done by one of the systems discussed. is that correct?
