Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-7209) allow metastore authorization api calls to be restricted to certain invokers
Date Thu, 03 Jul 2014 23:41:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-7209?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14052006#comment-14052006
] 

Lefty Leverenz commented on HIVE-7209:
--------------------------------------

For the record:  The patch changes the description of *hive.security.metastore.authorization.manager*
in hive-default.xml.template (see the release note for new functionality).

I added a comment to HIVE-6586 so it won't get lost in the shuffle when HIVE-6037 changes
HiveConf.java.

> Any user who has direct access to metastore can make metastore api calls that modify
the authorization policy. 
> The users who can make direct metastore api calls in a secure cluster configuration are
usually the 'cluster insiders' such as Pig and MR users, who are not (securely) covered by
the metastore based authorization policy. But it makes sense to disallow access from such
users as well.
