Finer grain privileges in the Sentry App

17 August 2018 in Administration / Browsing / Querying / Version 4 - 1 minute read

Aloha Security junkies!

In an upcoming release of Hue we’ve added some Sentry finer grain privileges in the Security app and, as a bonus, we’ve embedded viewing privileges directly in the Table Browser.

Accordingly to what object you are applying privileges to, you will get only the available options now.

To summarize what’s new, CREATE will work at the SERVER/DB scopes, while REFRESH/ALTER/DROP will work at the SERVER/DB/TABLE scopes.

We hope that these new improvements will help you manage better who can do what on your data. As always, if you have any questions or feedback, feel free to comment here, on the hue-user list or @gethue!
