Subject [jira] [Commented] (SENTRY-74) Add column-level privileges for Hive/Impala
Date Sun, 05 Oct 2014 18:55:34 GMT


Prasad Mujumdar commented on SENTRY-74:

I think we are pretty close to getting this committed. Here are a few minor things left -
- Take another pass at the review comments and make sure the updated patches are attached
to the ticket.
- Rebase the patch on latest
- Regenerate the thrift code after rebase since some of the interfaces are changed on the
master branch

> Currently the finest grain of privilege is at the table/view level. This leads to the
unwieldy scenario where a different view has to be created for each combination of columns
that need to be restricted. With column level privileges this would not be required.
> In the policy file column privileges might potentially look like:
> server=server1->db=default->table=employees->column=salary->action=select
