Known Issues in Apache Oozie

Learn about the known issues in Oozie, the impact or changes to the functionality, and the workaround.

OOZIE-3549: Oozie fails to start when Cloudera Manager 7.x is used with Cloudera Runtime 6.x and Java 11 because Oozie does not set the trust-store password.
The issue is fixed in OOZIE-3549 and is already included in CDP 7.x but not in CDH 6.x. If you are on CDH 6.x and want to upgrade to Java 11 or your Cloudera Manager to 7.x then you must request for a patch.
Oozie jobs fail (gracefully) on secure YARN clusters when JobHistory server is down

If the JobHistory server is down on a YARN (MRv2) cluster, Oozie attempts to submit a job, by default, three times. If the job fails, Oozie automatically puts the workflow in a SUSPEND state.

When the JobHistory server is running again, use the resume command to inform Oozie to continue the workflow from the point at which it left off.
Unsupported Feature
The following Oozie features are currently not supported in Cloudera Data Platform:
  • Non-support for Pig action (CDPD-1070)
  • Conditional coordinator input logic

Cloudera does not support using Derby database with Oozie. You can use it for testing or debugging purposes, but Cloudera does not recommend using it in production environments. This could cause failures while upgrading from CDH to CDP.
