Requirements for compressing and extracting files using Hue File Browser
Downloading multiple files from the Hue File Browser is not supported directly. If you want to download multiple files, you can compress them into a zip file and download the zip file. To use the compress and extract function, you must have the Oozie service installed on your cluster, along with other zip and unzip utilities.
You do not see the Compress option on the File Browser page in Hue.
This can happen because you may not have the Oozie service installed on your cluster, or it is not configured to be used with Hue.
