Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-3115) Table Links and Authorization
Date Tue, 12 Jun 2012 01:31:43 GMT


Carl Steinbach commented on HIVE-3115:

bq. Security has been added recently, and there are many existing features which do not work
very well with it. ... Given that, there are many issues in security currently, it seems wrong
to put the burden on links for security.

It sounds like you're saying that since there are some open bugs with the current authorization
system it's OK to add even more bugs? 

bq. Links is a new feature, and lots of bells and whistles will be added over time.

I can't think of a single person outside the walls of Facebook who has voiced any interest
in using this feature, yet most of the non-FB Hive users I speak to list the authorization
system as one of their top concerns. I don't think it's acceptable to run up any more technical
debt on the authorization feature.
