    If using a Custom Action Node, ensure that the JAR containing the Java code and the XML schema definition (XSD) for the custom action have been deployed. The XSD must also be specified in the Oozie configuration.

  3. Click any node type in the Action Nodes section to add the node to the workflow.

    1. Optional: Double-click on the node and type an identifying name for the node.

      Each node in the flow must have a unique name. Spaces are not allowed in the node name.
