From http://community.cloudera.com/t5/Interactive-Short-cycle-SQL/insert-inherit-permissions-has-no-effect-on-quot-insert/m-p/39270#M1612, it appears that --insert_inherit_permissions is not observed when doing an INSERT OVERWRITE:
Came across an interesting behavior with insert_inherit_permissions param.
Doing a bunch of "insert into" table x, hdfs file persmissions are as expected as shown below.
drwxrwxrwt - impala hive 0 2015-01-06 10:39 /user/hive/warehouse/rt_test/year=2015/month=1/adate=6/hour=10/min=39
Then I did an "insert overwrite" on the same table and found that the hdfs file persmissions got reset as shown below:
drwxr-xr-x - impala hive 0 2015-01-06 10:43 /user/hive/warehouse/rt_test/year=2015/month=1/adate=6/hour=10/min=39
I am on impala 2.0....
Is this a bug?
