Allow access to Data Lake/Hive for Niharika
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I'm responsible for analyzing Eventlogging data for Community Tech projects (TemplateWizard at the moment) and would like to have access to Hive so I can run the queries I need to.

I do already have production access and stat1006 access, if that helps.

@Niharika: Please review

It seems that Hive has both the public and private data options. I would assume you need private data for more info, but assuming on access requests is typically non-ideal so I rather have you confirm.

What data specifically will you need to access so we can determine if its in the private data or not? (If you know the answer, please share!) Both of these are non-sudo, so once we have an answer its simply a 3 business day wait for objections to possibly be noted.

Please provide feedback and unassign youself when done (and clinic duty will pick it back up.) Also please have your manager approve the expansion on this task.

@RobH Currently I only need access to Eventlogging data for TemplateWizard (As mentioned in task). I don't know if it's public or private - @Milimetric can perhaps confirm.

@DannyH Could you sign off on this?

Yes, I approve.

RobH reassigned this task from Niharika to Milimetric.Nov 21 2018, 7:04 PM

@Milimetric: I'm assigning to you for feedback on if @nikarika needs the private-data version or not. Please advise and unassign yourself from the task, and it'll be picked back up by clinic duty.

Private. Niharika would benefit from being a part of analytics-privatedata-users, including access to data before it's sanitized.

Private. Niharika would benefit from being a part of analytics-privatedata-users, including access to data before it's sanitized.


Ok, so this is now a request to append @Niharika access to include analytics-privatedata-users group.

If no objections are noted, this can merge live after 3 business days. (Thursday is a holiday in the US), so next Monday, 2018-11-26.
