hi @zkfs

the int field you see is the grantttime (in unix timestamp) when the grant was assigned.

I would like to see time of grant given on table or role ?

Hi @zkfs

I haven't seen a query to do that yet in Hive. Instead, you can query the hive metastore for the information, though be mindful that queries run directly against the metastore could impact your hive performance and are not recommended for production systems. Look at the TBL_PRIVS and TBLS within the hive DB in the metastore, joining these on the TBL_ID may give you the table view you are looking for. You can probably construct a similar metastore query to look at it from a PRINCIPAL_TYPE (role) as well.
