Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-2504) Warehouse table subdirectories should inherit the group permissions of the warehouse parent directory
Date Mon, 09 Apr 2012 20:03:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-2504?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13250116#comment-13250116

Rohini Palaniswamy commented on HIVE-2504:
------------------------------------------

Sorry. I am new to the hive community and was not aware of the process and did not see it
in HowToContribute page also. Went with the general practice of reopening bugs if there was
an issue. Also this patch was still in trunk and not part of any release. Thanks for pointing
out the process. Have created HIVE-2936 to track the new patch.

> When the Hive Metastore creates a subdirectory in the Hive warehouse for
> a new table it does so with the default HDFS permissions. Since the default
> dfs.umask value is 022, this means that the new subdirectory will not inherit the
> group write permissions of the hive warehouse directory.
> We should make the umask used by Warehouse.mkdirs() configurable, and set
> it to use a default value of 002.
