Date Tue, 27 Oct 2015 04:41:27 GMT


Sushanth Sowmyan commented on HIVE-11988:

Oh! True. I remember thinking that I needed to update that, but somehow thought it was part
of my previous plan for how I wanted to have a separate *ForTest class. I'll update it.

> if a user does not have permission to create table in hive , then if the same user import
data for a table using following command then , it will have to create table also and that
is working successfully , ideally it should not work
> STR:
> ====
> 1. put some raw data in hdfs path /user/user1/tempdata
> 2. in ranger check policy , user1 should not have any permission on any table
> 3. login through user1 into beeline ( obviously it will fail since user doesnt have permission
to create table)
> create table tt1(id INT,ff String);
> FAILED: HiveAccessControlException Permission denied: user user1 does not have CREATE
privilege on default/tt1 (state=42000,code=40000)
> 4. now try following command to import data into a table ( table should not exist already)
> import table tt1 from '/user/user1/tempdata';
> ER:
> since user1 doesnt have permission to create table so this operation should fail
> AR:
> table is created successfully and data is also imported !!
