This is the documentation for Cloudera Manager 4.8.6. Documentation for other versions is available at Cloudera Documentation.

Cloudera Manager 4 and CDH 4 have reached End of Maintenance (EOM) on August 9, 2015. Cloudera will not support or provide patches for any of the Cloudera Manager 4 or CDH 4 releases after that date.

The Oozie Service

Cloudera Manager installs the Oozie server as part of the CDH installation. There are additional steps you need to take to enable the Oozie Web console, to enable SSL communication with Oozie, and to configure an external database for use with Oozie (Cloudera Manager configures Derby by default).

Enabling the Oozie Web Console

  1. Download ext-2.2.
  2. Extract the contents of the file to /var/lib/oozie/.
  3. In the Cloudera Manager Admin Console, go to the Oozie service.
  4. Select Configuration > View and Edit.
  5. Check Enable Oozie server web console.
  6. Save your changes.
  7. Restart the Oozie service.

Enabling SSL for Oozie

You can enable SSL for communication with the Oozie server by setting the "Use SSL" property in your Oozie Security configuration, and adding the keystore file location and password.

  1. From the Services menu. select the Oozie service.
  2. From the Configuration menu, select View and Edit.
  3. Under the Service-Wide > Security category, check Use SSL and save your changes.
  4. Under the Oozie Server (Default) > Security category, type the path to the keystore file in the Oozie SSL Keystore File field, type the password into the Oozie SSL Keystore Password field, and save your changes.
  5. Restart the Oozie service.

Using an External Database for Oozie

By default, Cloudera Manager uses Derby for Oozie's database. If necessary, you can configure Oozie to use an external database.

Oozie supports the following databases:

  • MySQL 5.0 and 5.5
  • PostgreSQL 8.4 and 9.0
  • Oracle 11g

To configure Cloudera Manager to use an external database as the database for Oozie:

  1. In Cloudera Manager, navigate to the Services page and click the Oozie service instance.
  2. Select Configuration > View and Edit.
  3. Expand Oozie Server (Default) and click Database.
  4. Specify the settings for Oozie Server database type, Oozie Server database name, Oozie Server database host, Oozie Server database user, and Oozie Server database password.

If you are using MySQL or Oracle, ensure that mysql-connector-java.jar or ojdbc6- respectively are copied or symlinked into the /var/lib/oozie/ directory.
