Subject [jira] [Created] (HIVE-13589) beeline - support prompt for password with '-u' option
Date Fri, 22 Apr 2016 02:46:12 GMT
Thejas M Nair created HIVE-13589:

             Summary: beeline - support prompt for password with '-u' option
                 Key: HIVE-13589
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Beeline
            Reporter: Thejas M Nair

Specifying connection string using commandline options in beeline is convenient, as it gets
saved in shell command history, and it is easy to retrieve it from there.
However, specifying the password in command prompt is not secure as it gets displayed on screen
and saved in the history.

It should be possible to specify '-p' without an argument to make beeline prompt for password.
