             Summary: Add Authorization interface to support information_schema 
integration with external authorization
                 Key: HIVE-18777
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Thejas M Nair
            Assignee: Thejas M Nair

HIVE-1010 added support for information_schema. However, the authorization 
information is not integrated when another project such as Ranger is used to do 
the authorization.
We need to add API which Ranger/Sentry can implement, so that it is possible to 
retrieve authorization policy information from them.
The existing API only supports checking if user has a permission on an object 
and can't be used to retrieve policy details.
