Beeline gives list of all columns present for a user who doesn't have access to all the columns



Enable ranger plugin for hive.

Grant access to the database -> table -> few columns of the table and select access to a user/group.

Describe table throws an error: expected.

select <allowed_columns> from table ; gives results expected.

However, in case if we give a wrong column - it would suggest to choose from all the available columns on the table. Is this something expected. Can't we restrict the users from knowing the different columns that are present in the table.


This is the expected behavior from hive. @thejas can provide more insight.
