      Description

      Hive Ranger Plugin should allow access to DESCRIBE/SHOW COLUMNS on table if user has any access on database/table/columns. Currently if the user has only access to few columns on a Table then DESCRIBE table_name / SHOW COLUMNS (FROM|IN) table_name [(FROM|IN) db_name] fails with HiveAuthorization exception.
      User needs to have access to all the columns in order to allow access by Ranger Hive Plugin
