Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-3016) Allow disabling foreign table access (cross database) using hiveconf
Date Thu, 17 May 2012 06:59:02 GMT


Carl Steinbach commented on HIVE-3016:

bq. Yes, the user can override this property but we don't expect any users to.

You're joking, right?

Also, based on what you have described so far you can accomplish the same result by running
separate metastores.

> Disallow cross database access to tables using Y.T syntax under a specific configuration
in HiveConf.
> i.e. when hive.error.on.crossdatabaseaccess is set to true, return an error when Y.T
syntax is used to access tables and Y is not the current database. This can be set both via
the client and in hive-site.xml, and will default to false.
