Setting the Oozie database timezone

Depending on the type of database you are using with Oozie, you must configure specific properties for setting the database timezone.

Cloudera recommends that you set the timezone in the Oozie database to GMT. Databases do not handle Daylight Saving Time (DST) shifts correctly. There might be problems if you run any Coordinators with actions scheduled to materialize during the one-hour period that gets lost in DST.

For more information about how to set your database's timezone, see your database's documentation.
