Provide password file option to beeline

    Details

    • Type: Improvement
    • Status: Closed
    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: 0.13.0
    • Fix Version/s: 1.2.0
    • Component/s: CLI, Clients
    • Labels:
    • Release Note:
      Added an --password-file (or, -w) option to BeeLine CLI, to read a password from a permission-protected file instead of supplying it in plaintext form as part of the command (-p).

      Description

      For people connecting to Hive Server 2 with LDAP authentication enabled, in order to batch run commands, we currently have to provide the password openly in the command line. They could use some expect scripting, but I think a valid improvement would be to provide a password file option similar to other CLI commands in hadoop (e.g. sqoop) to be more secure.
