Subject Re: Multiuser setup on Hive
Date Thu, 22 Nov 2012 07:12:17 GMT
Hi Bejoy,

Thanks for the quick reply.
I had been reading through hive authorization
https://cwiki.apache.org/Hive/languagemanual-auth.html

Is it any good. Can anyone explain what happens if I enable this?
Will I be able to prevent users from deleting other user's tables?


Regards,
Austin
