Alexander Kolbasov commented on SENTRY-2137:

I agree that having a nice usable CLI is nice (we have two now to play with) 
but it doesn't mean that we should move things *out* of beeline.  Having REST 
API is quite possible as well but this is a different ask from CLI, so let's 
not mix it in one bucket.

> Improve and rework the CLI

>                 Key: SENTRY-2137
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SENTRY-2137
>             Project: Sentry
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0
>            Reporter: Steve Moist
>            Priority: Minor
> Sentry can be improved by moving all of the privilige actions for hive (such 
> as grant/revoke) from beeline and into a centralized CLI.  With this we can 
> do operations such as show all privileges for a role across HDFS, Hive, 
> Impala, etc in a single location and administer this in a single location.  
> In a cluster, it would be good to have the sentry cli as a standalone 
> executable, so building in a REST API for Sentry use would be needed.
