hi All - i've a kerberized HDP 2.4 cluster, and i'm facing issue wherein user - hbase_user1 created is not able to 'see' the table, though access is provided to the user.

Here is what is done ->

1) User - logging in as user 'hbase_user1' to cluster

2) generated a valid kerberos ticket

[hbase_user1@sandbox ~]$ klist Ticket cache: FILE:/tmp/krb5cc_1029 Default principal: hbase_user1@EXAMPLE.COM

Valid starting Expires Service principal 01/31/17 19:11:24 02/01/17 19:11:24 krbtgt/EXAMPLE.COM@EXAMPLE.COM renew until 01/31/17 19:11:24

3) launch 'hbase shell' and fire command -> list

4) contents of log file shows that authorization for hbase_user1 is successful ->

However, the user is not able to see any of the tables. Attaching the screenshot of Ranger policies - Global access to HBase tables is blocked, while access is provided to tabe iemployee to user - hbase_user1.

Also, pls note : service user - hbase is able to access all hbase tables

What needs to be done to fix this access issue for user -> hbase_user1 ?

Any pointers on this would be appreciated.

Login with HBase user and grant access to hbase_user1 on the table

grant 'user', 'RWXCA', 'TABLE', 'CF', 'CQ'

https://hbase.apache.org/book.html#hbase.accesscontrol.configuration

@Artem Ervits -

thanks, granting access to the user - hbase_user1 actually worked.

However, i'd already given access to the table using Apache Ranger. Shouldn't that have worked ?

What needs to be done to check/ensuure the Ranger integration with Hbase to control access ?

A few more details -

Actually, when i check the Ranger audit logs - the user 'hbase_user1' appears only till December 2nd, 2017 - screenshot

This setup was created in Nov, and was working when i checked last year,

Attaching screenshots of the ranger policies. - global access to hbase is removed, and access to table - 'iemployee' is provided to user - hbase_user1.

@Karan Alang you need to disable global allow policy and grant permissions per table, please review the section on hbase in our tutorial, it explains it well http://hortonworks.com/hadoop-tutorial/manage-security-policy-hive-hbase-knox-ranger/#hbase-grant-re...

@Artem Ervits - wrt. your previous comment, i've done exactly that (pls see my comments above & also the screenshots attached in my previous comment)

i.e. 1) Disabled Global access to Hbase table

2) Given access to user - hbase_user1 to scan table 'iemployee'

This is done using Apache Ranger, for some reason the Ranger permissions are not being enforced.

Any ideas ?

When i provided the permissions on command-line, i was able to enforce permissions !

@Karan Alang you still need to provide explicit policy even though ranger for hbase is enabled, once you run explicit grant/revoke, it will be propogated to Ranger. Please see our doc http://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-2.5.3/bk_security/content/ch03s02s04s02.html all make sure your hbase service is configured correctly http://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-2.5.3/bk_security/content/ch03s02s04s02.html

also double check ranger hbase plugin settings http://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-2.5.3/bk_security/content/hbase_plugin_kerberos.ht...
