Changing user directory permissions
Per user home directories are created on HDFS when you create a new user in Hue, which the user can use to store and retrieve files using the Hue File Browser. If you have not set the value of the home_dir_permissions property to 0700 in the Hue Advanced Configuration before creating users in Hue, then you can change the permissions for those users later to prevent unauthorized access.
- SSH in to the Hue server host as an Administrator.
Run the following command to change the permission for a user:
hdfs dfs -chmod 700 /user/[***USERNAME***]
