Configuring Oracle for Oozie

You must install Oracle 12.2, create the Oozie Oracle user and grant privileges, and add the Oracle JDBC driver jar file to Oozie.

  1. Install and Start Oracle 12.2
  2. Create the Oozie Oracle User and Grant Privileges.
    The following example uses the Oracle sqlplus command-line tool, and shows the privileges Cloudera recommends. Oozie needs CREATE SESSION to start and manage workflows. The additional roles are needed for creating and upgrading the Oozie database.
    $ sqlplus system@localhost
    Enter password: ******
    SQL> create user oozie identified by oozie default tablespace users temporary tablespace temp;
    User created.
    SQL> grant alter index to oozie;
    grant alter table to oozie;
    grant create index to oozie;
    grant create sequence to oozie;
    grant create session to oozie;
    grant create table to oozie;
    grant drop sequence to oozie;
    grant select dictionary to oozie;
    grant drop table to oozie;
    alter user oozie quota unlimited on users; 
    alter user oozie quota unlimited on system;
    SQL> exit
  3. Add the Oracle JDBC Driver JAR to Oozie.
    Copy or symbolically link the Oracle JDBC driver JAR into the /var/lib/oozie/ directory.
