Hive 3.1.0 authentification / authorization

New Contributor


we started to use HDP3.1.0, we also upgraded hive to 3.1.0. and we use JDBC connector for SQL developer (by Cloudera).

But there is an issue. If we enable authorization we get following error in SQL developer:

HiveSQLException:Error while compiling statement: FAILED: NullPointerException null:17:16

I think it is because JDBCconnector by cloudera supports hive up to version 2.6.2 only.

And if we enable PAM authentification (PAM), we always get error :

failure: Error validating the login

Everything worked fine when we were using HDP 2.6. . These issues came up after upgrade.

Is it possible that this is because of new Hive version ? Should we downgrade HIVE (can we downgrade it?)
