Chapter 6. Using HDP for Workflow and Scheduling (Oozie)

Hortonworks Data Platform deploys Apache Oozie for your Hadoop cluster.

Oozie is a server-based workflow engine specialized in running workflow jobs with actions that execute Hadoop jobs, such as MapReduce, Pig, Hive, Sqoop, HDFS operations, and sub- workflows. Oozie supports coordinator jobs, which are sequences of workflow jobs that are created at a given frequency and start when all of the required input data is available.

A command-line client and a browser interface allow you to manage and administer Oozie jobs locally or remotely.

After installing an HDP 2.x cluster by using Ambari, access the Oozie web UI at the following URL:
