Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-6547) normalize struct Role in metastore thrift interface
Date Thu, 27 Mar 2014 19:45:16 GMT


Thejas M Nair commented on HIVE-6547:

The patch also remioves additional fields  - principalname and principaltype in 'show role
grant user user2" output, as that is redundant information. Also removes role createtime from
this command output as that is not relevant to role grant information.

>             Project: Hive
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Metastore, Thrift API
>    Affects Versions: 0.13.0
>            Reporter: Thejas M Nair
>            Assignee: Thejas M Nair
>             Fix For: 0.13.0
>         Attachments: HIVE-6547.1.patch, HIVE-6547.nothriftgen.1.patch, HIVE-6547.thriftapi.2.patch,
> As discussed in HIVE-5931, it will be cleaner to have the information about Role to role
member mapping removed from the Role object, as it is not part of a logical Role. This information
not relevant for actions such as creating a Role.
> As part of this change  get_role_grants_for_principal api will be added, so that it can
be used in place of  list_roles, when role mapping information is desired.
