how to use HADOOP_USER_NAME variable

how to use HADOOP_USER_NAME variable

Need a solution to a problem in Cloudera CCA 131 examination. The example video in the exam site is on the flume.

As in the exam instructions, the default user is cert but we have to use another user to do our operations, for that we have to use export HADOOP_USER_NAME=<username>


I have run export HADOOP_USER_NAME=joe and I tried to create /data/incoming directories using joe user but I ran through permission denied


In the following video, It went smoothly to him


Can you tell me how to use other users to work  through problems in the CCA131 exam
