Hi ,

 i am trying to set hive authorization on the cluster. i setup the following properties

      <description>enable or disable the hive client authorization</description>
      <description>the privileges automatically granted to the owner whenever a table gets created.
       An example like "select,drop" will grant select and drop privilege to the owner of the table</description>

and tired creating a table under demouser name

(create table authorization_test(key int,value string);)

and expected result was

Authrization faild :No privilages'create' found for outputs{database:default}.use show grants to get more details

but what i get is different

create table test(id int, name string);

    FAILED: Error in metadata: MetaException(message:Got exception: Error: Permission denied(13), file: test)
    FAILED: Execution Error, return code 1 from org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.exec.DDLTask

where i gave 775 to demo.db so its not able to write to that dir we can restrict by this but what i was try to do was use grants in hive.

any pointers would be greatfully.
