cloudera CL user permissions

Contributor

hi Everyone,

 

I'm trying to figure what permissions or where can i set up a user to be able to write data to HDFS. The application that I used to write to HDFS only was able to write data to it if i start the application as the HDFS user but, what if I want to be use another user? This is using the command line and not through Cloudera CM. I do have Cloudera CM CDH 5.2.1
