Subject [jira] [Created] (SENTRY-751) HDFS plugin should handle Server level privileges
Date Wed, 03 Jun 2015 15:46:38 GMT
Prasad Mujumdar created SENTRY-751:

             Summary: HDFS plugin should handle Server level privileges
                 Key: SENTRY-751
             Project: Sentry
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Hdfs Plugin
    Affects Versions: 1.6.0
            Reporter: Prasad Mujumdar

Currently the HDFS plugin handles DB and Table level permissions. The Server level privileges
are only honored by SQL plugins. This creates a bit of inconsistency between the privilege
models. A role with server level privilege can access any table in Hive but won't be able
to access the underlying files on HDFS.
The HDFS plugin should handle the Server level privileges the same way as Hive plugin.
