Hello HCC,

is there a way we can check user permissions for a user called 'xyz' in HBase shell and also how to check permissions granted for a HBase table.

Thanks in advance.

The user_permission command shows all access permissions for the current user for a given table:

user_permission <table>

hbase> user_permission
hbase> user_permission '@ns1'
hbase> user_permission '@.*'
hbase> user_permission '@^[a-c].*'
hbase> user_permission 'table1'
hbase> user_permission 'namespace1:table1'
hbase> user_permission '.*'
hbase> user_permission '^[A-C].*'

You may use user_permission <table> in the hbase shell for the list of the users that can access to the table. Also you may run scan 'hbase:acl', but that would require superuser privs in HBase.
