    I've not tried this, so i'm guessing here .. but a googlesearch brings up a Hive 2.1.x release note

    8.8. Known Issues for Hive - Hortonworks Data Platform

    BUG-16864: When Hive standard
    authorization is enabled, the owner of the table backing index is missing.

    Problem: The query fails with the
    following error:

    2014-04-16 16:50:13,312 ERROR [pool-7-thread-5]: ql.Driver ( - FAILED: HiveAccessControlException

    Permission denied. Principal [name=hrt_qa, type=USER] does not have following privileges on Object [type=TABLE_OR_VIEW, name=default.default__missing_ddl_3_missing_ddl_3_index__] : [OBJECT OWNERSHIP]

    HiveAccessControlException: Permission denied


    but other searches for "HiveAccessControlException Permission denied"  seem to suggest it a case of granting permissions to the user  like hive>> grant select on table <Mytable> to user hue;
