      Using HADOOP_PROXY_USER a superuser can access hive through hive cli on behalf of another user.
      To use this feature, export HADOOP_PROXY_USER with the user that has to be proxied and start hive cli.
      The HADOOP_PROXY_USER variable can be set as part of system environmental variable or in system properties.
