How to block Hive CLI access?

Super Guru

Hive CLI will be depercated soon. Is there any way to block invoking hive CLI? this way forcing users to only use beeline.

Re: How to block Hive CLI access?

You could symbolic link the hive cli script/command to the beeline script command. This will ensure the "hive" command always executes "beeline".

@Sunile Manjee

One way to accomplish this would be to change the permissions on the hive executable to remove read and execute access for group and other:

chmod 400 /usr/hdp/current/hive-client/bin/hive

Re: How to block Hive CLI access?

Of course both of these options can be worked around by anyone with access and rights to the file system.

I appreciate all the feedback.

Re: How to block Hive CLI access?

just use doAs=true make sure only hive can read the warehouse folder and you are done. Hive cli can start but not access anything
