Change permissions of a file in HDFS.

Big Data Hadoop

Hi Guys,

I have uploaded files to HDFS Cluster. I want to change the permissions of this file. How can I do that? 



You can use the Chmod command to change the permissions of a file in HDFS.  This command will help you in completing your task and is similar to the Linux shell command. The syntax is represented below:

$ hadoop fs -chmod [-R] PATH
