What BI tool are you using? Depending on the tool you will need to create a role with select privilege on that underlying database and give that role to the user to generate the report.

Most BI tools use ODBC/JDBC to connect with hive you can using LDAP to manage the groups who can create dashboards makes the work the users/groups more manageable.
