      Description

      The documentation of Impala's support for Sentry authorization on Kudu tables, available here:
      http://impala.apache.org/docs/build/html/topics/impala_kudu.html

      is out of date. It should be updated to include the changes made in IMPALA-5489. In particular:

      • Access is no longer "all or nothing" - we support column-level permissions
      • Permissions do not apply "to all SQL operations" - we support SELECT- and INSERT-specific permissions. DELETE/UPDATE/UPSERT still require ALL

      We should also document that "all on server" is required to specify "kudu.master_addresses" in a CREATE, even for managed tables, in addition to be required to CREATE any external table.
