Oozie Improvements with email notifications and extended dashboard filtering

Hello Oozie users,

Among other improvements, Hue 3.12 comes with two very useful updates in Oozie.

Email Notifications

With HUE-4995, it is very easy to send an email notification after a workflow execution is complete. The following steps will guide you to enable this.

In the Workflow submission popup, if your email is not already setup, the email notification checkbox is disabled

Clicking on profile button should take you to the useradmin page, where you can save your email.

After this, the workflow submission popup will show the Send completion email checkbox, which can be enabled to receive the email notification.


If SMTP server is not configured in Oozie, you will see the following configuration alert in the quick start page.

Extended Dashboard Filtering (OOZIE-2225HUE-5202)

[requires Apache Oozie 5.0+]

Just start typing in the text field to get the list of jobs whose Name or Submitter partially matches with the text. From the below picture, you can see that text sh partially matches with the names of all 4 jobs. Note that the filter is applied on all the jobs and not just the ones in the current page.

To find the one single job among thousands of submitted jobs, you should enter the complete ID as shown below.


Flag to enable Oozie backend filtering instead of doing it at the page level in Javascript. Requires Oozie 5.0+.


As always, feel free to suggest new improvements or comment on the hue-user list or @gethue!

    I would like to ask some questions about oozie workflow.
    First I create a workflow, second, add a HDFS node to dashed-box , then dragged into a new HDFS in the HDFS node on the left. There will be a pop-box appeared, at now, close the pop-up box instead of click the ‘Add’ button .Third,add a parent HDFS at the top of the first HDFS;Fourth, add a child hdfs node to the start node, there will be confusion of the line,
    I try to modify the final link data obtained in drawArrow, but can not ultimately solve the problem.So I want to know where should I to modify to do control on this question?

      This might be a bug. Do you have a screenshot of the workflow?

    I’ve tried searching for a solution online, but no luck. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

      You can’t modify where the arrows are pointing. If we understand correctly you don’t want to have 2 forks but just one global one?
      Also, another question we have: which version/kind of Hue are you using? We don’t recognize the top bar 🙂

  3. Etoile 2 years ago

    I am sorry that there is a url was wrong.
    The first problem , i don’t want to have 2 forks but just one global one, and it has three branches.
    The second problem, I modified the line color to #000. Are you asking the line color?
    My English is poor.I really want to communicate in Chinese. /(ㄒ.ㄒ)/~~

      We cannot really support or find out problems of non-official Hue forks. Which version are you using or what company are you working for? I see the top banner is different, there’s a new logo, and Oozie has even a different custom bar…

    I’m using version 3.10, here are some screenshots of version 3.11 (http://pan.baidu.com/s/1hr4fVfu).
    Finally, thank you very much for your reply.

    I have chosen three examples to verify that demo has the same problem.

  6. Etoile 2 years ago

    I encountered these problems in the process of using, and I do not know how to solve these problems.
    I don’t know if I can solve these problems with your help. Or when is the next update? Is there a solution to these problems?

    Hi All ,
    I would like to get notification of any oozie job in failure/Killed or running over a email , can you let me know how I can do that?

  8. I am facing a lot of manual works to check the logs for failed actions in Oozie job in Yarn logs as the Oozie job just says only failed but why is not there so have to dig deep to yarn logs. Is there a way to capture the error from yarn job logs to Oozie mail alert?
