Subject Re: How to prevent user drop table in Hive metadata?
Date Fri, 22 Nov 2013 19:45:06 GMT
Hi Echo,

I dont think there is any to prevent this. I had the same concern in hbase,
but found out that it is assumed that user using the system are very much
aware of it.  I am into hive from last 3 months, was looking for some kind
of way here, but no luck till now..
