Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-5928) Add a hive authorization plugin api that does not assume privileges needed
Date Tue, 03 Dec 2013 21:10:35 GMT


Thejas M Nair commented on HIVE-5928:

During this refactor, we need to explore how the existing access control statement update
code can be re-used across both old and new authorization models.

> The existing HiveAuthorizationProvider interface implementations can be used to support
custom authorization models.
> But this interface limits the customization for these reasons -
> 1. It has assumptions about the privileges required for an action.
> 2. It does have not functions that you can implement for having custom ways of doing
the actions of access control statements.
> This jira proposes a new interface HiveBaseAuthorizationProvider that does not make assumptions
of the privileges required for the actions. The authorize() functions will be equivalent of
authorize(<hive object>, <action>). It will also have functions that will be called
from the access control statements.
> The current HiveAuthorizationProvider will continue to be supported for backward compatibility.
There will be a subclass of HiveBaseAuthorizationProvider that executes actions using this
