Hi @RajeshMadurai 


Please try the below command

Command: hdfs dfs -getfacl -R /



hdfs dfs -getfacl -R /

Will display all the sub-directories and files.


Particular i need to check the /user directory alone.

Eg); hdfs dfs -getfacl /user






For checking individual above four directories it possible any other way?

Did you get a chance to try the below command once?

hdfs dfs -getfacl -R /user
