Do you want to secure Hive Views using Ranger authorisation? Is this your requirement?

Thanks Asish. Appreciate your response. Is it possible to just backup Hive metadata without DB dump?

Expert Contributor

@NikoBelic  Thanks for the update. The hive metadata indeed is stored on database. You need to take the dump to backup the metadata.
