      Description

      Beeline - without adding the jdbc url - prompts for username and password in case hive.server2.authentication=NONE, which is possibly pointless and can be misleading for users as any input is accepted.

      In addition, Sqoop has dropped hive cli recently in favor of beeline and if there is no authentication set in Hive, Sqoop fails to connect as the process stops waiting for the user/password input.

      I think it would be nice to check the auth type "NONE" before reading unused inputs from the console before this point:
