      Description

      When Ranger is enabled with no further authentication method configured and no user specified Impala throws IllegalArgumentException (see bellow).

      Meanwhile, Hive JDBC replaces empty user with 'anonymous'. Although, without authentication any user can be impersonated and it is a rare use-case, we should consider substitute empty username for 'anonymous' as well for interoperability.
