HBase policy with Ranger

Explorer

Hi,

Say I have HBase tables with names starting with poc (namespacing is not used).

Is there any way to grant rights to all tables that start with poc using Ranger? I tried to specify poc* in the HBase Table section of the Policy, but users get Insufficient Permissions errors while accessing poc tables using hbase shell.

Explicitly specifying each poc table works fine.

HDP-2.4.0.0-169 (HBase 1.1.2.2.4, Ranger 0.5.0.2.4).

Thanks.

Ranger does not work with wildcard characters. Unfortunately, you would need to specify each table name separately if you would like to create policy for it.
