      Description

      When a Hive service is configured for tag-based authorization, the audit log generated for ‘use dbName’ command would contain all the tags associated with: the database, all tables in the database, all the columns in the database. The number of tags in this audit log could be too many; and having such large number of tags in audit logs of 'use <dbName>' command may not be useful. It will be better not to log tags in audit logs for 'use <dbName>' commands. Policy-id recorded in the audit log can be used to identity the tag, if a tag-based policy authorized the command.
