We have recently enabled Sentry in our cluster. When I try to do a SHOW TABLE STATS on a HBase Table through the Impala shell, it runs into the following permission error:
0: jdbc:hive2://LB> show table stats database.table_summary;
Error: RuntimeException: org.apache.hadoop.security.AccessControlException: Permission denied: user=impala, access=EXECUTE, inode="/hbase":hbase:hbase:drwx------
I have tried adding the impala user to the hbase.superuser but still see the same issues. I have also granted impala and hive RWACX through the hbase shell. Is there something else that needs to be done?
