table creation should fail when user does not have permissions on db

    Details

    • Release Note:
      One cannot create table (whether or not they provide a LOCATION) if they do not have WRITE permission on the database directory.

      Description

      Its possible to create a table under a database where the user does not have write permission. It can be done by specifying a LOCATION where the user has write access (say /tmp/foo). This should be restricted.

      HdfsAuthorizationProvider (which typically runs on client) checks the database directory during table creation. But StorageBasedAuthorizationProvider does not.
