Sentry is used as an authorization tool. Define rules what users are allowed to do. Sentry is not a tool to edit data, so no redaction can be done. If you meant "restrict" and that's a typo error, then the answer is positive, you can check https://www.cloudera.com/documentation/enterprise/5-14-x/topics/cm_sg_sentry_service.html#hive_impal... The easiest way is to use HUE. If you need to do it through Beeline, then check syntax in https://www.cloudera.com/documentation/enterprise/5-14-x/topics/sg_hive_sql.html
