HCatalog drop table from Hue

HCatalog drop table from Hue

Expert Contributor

Hi all, I just enabled Ranger policies to read only on a database and its table. Everything works well but on Hue, i cannot drop a table from Hive, but I can very well drop the table from HCatalog even if drop if disabled in Ranger. How do I disable those permissions on Hcatalog as well?

I just enabled NO_DROP on all tables and it worked. Are there any issues with this approach?
