Hive Metastore Canary Health Issue

Hive Metastore Canary Health Issue


Hi, I am getting Hive Metastore Canary Health Issue, As user hue is not able to write in the hdfs directory.
I am running hue with custom process user name and group but why user hue is trying to write.? When I am using different custom user.

Why user "hue" is trying to create the table? @bgooley

Custom Hue User: sv_hue

HDFS directory : /user/sv_hue



Re: Hive Metastore Canary Health Issue



Once Hue is authenticated by a service (for example, Hive), Hue impersonates the user (doAs) requesting use of that service (for example, to create a table). The service uses Sentry (essentially a chmod tool) to ensure the group to which that user belongs is authorized for that action.
