Ranger Hive Hbase HDFS


I would like to know if ranger provides details about hive, hbase and hdfs tables. I've come across something called "hive view" of ambari which provides such service. Is there something similar for hbase and hdfs.

Thanks in advance!


Ranger supports setting up authorization for hive, hbase, hdfs and many other services. Could you clarify what you're looking for.

Hive view in Ambari allows to run Hive queries. Similarly there is a Files view that allows access to HDFS.

Is it possible to view hive tables and their contents from ranger UI? If ranger provides only creating policies for hive database

Ranger is used for only setting up policies. To browse hive tables and their content, you need to use other tools such as beeline.
