Apache Sentry (incubating)

INSERT OVERWRITE LOCAL fails if you use only the Linux pathname

Bug: None

Severity: Low

Workaround: Prefix the path of the local file with file:// when using INSERT OVERWRITE LOCAL.

INSERT OVERWRITE and CREATE EXTERNAL commands fail because of HDFS URI permissions

When you use Sentry to secure Hive, and use HDFS URIs in a HiveQL statement, the query will fail with an HDFS permissions error unless you specify the NameNode and port.

Bug: None

Severity: Low

Workaround: Specify the NameNode and port, where applicable, in the URI; for example specify hdfs://nn-uri:port/user/warehouse/hive/tab rather than simply /user/warehouse/hive/tab. In a high-availability deployment, specify the value of FS.defaultFS.
