Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-5931) SQL std auth - add metastore get_role_participants api - to support DESCRIBE ROLE
Date Tue, 04 Mar 2014 00:41:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-5931?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13918830#comment-13918830
] 

Thejas M Nair commented on HIVE-5931:
-------------------------------------

fyi, the addition of user-to-role mapping into Role 'class' was added in HIVE-6204 (hive 0.13,
so this will not be a backward incompatible change). But while working on this I feel, mixing
the role-to-user mapping and Role object is not very intuitive/clean, and we might be taking
on some technical debt there.
