If submitting a workflow to oozie manually and trying to monitor its progress using HUE, the workflow dashboard is broken if multiple kill nodes are defined in the workflow.
- The graph visualization is incorrect and just shows boxes, no connecting arrows or details on each box (see )
- The actions of the workflow are not shown and the message "There are no actions to be shown" is displayed (see )
- The definition of the workflow is not a formatted read-only XML but a 2 lines, scrollable textbox with a width of maybe 30 characters. (see )
Even after workflow completion the actions are not displayed, so it is impossible to get to the actual logs of the job or debug something in case the job failed. This renders hue rather useless for this type of workflow
According to oozie documentation this type of workflow definition is correct and thus should not lead to display issues in HUE, especially as it worked before.
A workflow definition may have zero or more kill nodes.
Use this sample XML and properties file of a workflow, upload it to e.g. /tmp/test_workflow_manual and start manually by submitting it to oozie via
Open the workflow dashboard for this workflow and check out.
