In the Cloudera 5.12.x manual it says to set the below property. Someone advised to change using Cloudera Manager. I am unable to find sentry.hive.testing.mode in CM under Hive->configuration. Also all files are generated in locations like /var/run/cloudera-scm-agent/process/467-hive-HIVESERVER2/sentry-site.xml so this file is in multiple processes and not a single location. Where do I change this property? And why does Cloudera make their docs so confusing??
