Subject [jira] [Created] (HIVE-12688) HIVE-11826 makes hive unusable in properly secured cluster
Date Wed, 16 Dec 2015 05:34:46 GMT
Thejas M Nair created HIVE-12688:

             Summary: HIVE-11826 makes hive unusable in properly secured cluster
                 Key: HIVE-12688
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.3.0, 2.0.0
            Reporter: Thejas M Nair
            Assignee: Thejas M Nair

HIVE-11826 makes a change to restrict connections to metastore to users who belong to groups
under 'hadoop.proxyuser.hive.groups'.
That property was only a meant to be a hadoop property, which controls what users the hive
user can impersonate. What this change is doing is to enable use of that to also restrict
who can connect to metastore server. This is new functionality, not a bug fix. There is value
to this functionality.

However, this change makes hive unusable in a properly secured cluster. If 'hadoop.proxyuser.hive.hosts'
is set to the proper set of hosts that run Metastore and Hiveserver2 (instead of a very open
"*"), then users will be able to connect to metastore only from those hosts.
