I'm doing a proof of concept of Cloudera Navigator in a VM.
I wonder if it is possible to configure certain Hive columns or certain Hive tables to be read only by certain users.
Is it possible to do it only with Cloudera Manager or do I need other tools?

The correct way is
1. In Cloudera manager -> Add Sentry Service and make sure it has Hue
2. Login to Hue -> Go to Security Menu -> it will have sub menu called either Sentry table (or) Hive table. The below link will explain why either sentry table or hive table. Use this option to set the db, table, column level authentication
