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.

  1. SSH in to the Hue server host as an Administrator.
  2. Run the following command to change the permission for a user:
    hdfs dfs -chmod 700 /user/[***USERNAME***]
