I am using Zeppelin 0.6 and hdp 2.4.2 and i am working on a live projecct , we have some user specific Notebook but we are not finding a way to restrict the user to a particular schema in hive. We don't have LDAP authentication but still wanted to implement such security . We are looking out a way in which user can be restricted for some of the databases or Schemas using Apache Ranger.
you can use Ranger for the security at the hive level. here you can install ranger and enable ranger hive plugin , and you can user unix/file based authentication.
I am just in the same situation where you have been stuck, we are also looking for an approach to restrict the user to a particular hive schema, table, filed in zeppelin notebook, could I ask if you have found out some good solutions to this problem ? Thanks.
