Privacera Documentation

Non-portal users can access restricted Privacera Platform resources

Problem: Local users of an EMR cluster who are not defined in the Privacera Portal policy can get access to the resources on which the policy is applied. This happens when Hive is used on EMR.

  2. Restart Hive.

    sudo service hive-server2 stop sudo service hive-server2 start
