Sentry integration with Hive authorization framework V2



    • New Feature
    • Status: Resolved
    • Major
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • hive_plugin_v2
    • hive_plugin_v2, 1.7.0
    • None


      Currently Sentry grant/revoke privileges via hook DDLTask, and do authorization via HiveSemanticAnalyzerHook. Now hive has a pluggable authorization framework via exposing some interfaces HiveAccessController and HiveAuthorizationValidator. HiveAccessController is used to grant/revoke roles and privileges. HiveAuthorizationValidator is used to do fine-grained authorization.

      Advantages to use this framework to grant/revoke privileges and do authorization:

      • This framework is very convenient to use by external authorization system.
      • Using this framework will be better accepted by community.
      • We don't need to take efforts to add so many hooks.
      • Some hooks has limitations. e.g. For column level security, we can't get accessed cloumns from query via HiveSemanticAnalyzerHook, so I extend the readEntity to put accessed columns into it(HIVE-7730). But if we use this framework, we don't need to extend the readEntity, we can just get accessed columns from ColumnAccessInfo directly.

      I will not remove the old sentry authorization framework, I will just add a new authorizationV2 via implement Hive authorization framework. If all the e2e tests passed, we can mark the old authorization deprecated.
