Limit Available Action Nodes in Oozie Workflow Editor in HUE

CDH 5.10

 

Is there a way to customize which Action Nodes are displayed in the Oozie Workflow Editor in HUE?

 

For example, say I don't want a user to be able to select the ssh action, or see it there at all.

I couldn't find any reference to this in the docs.

 

The closest thing that appears to be relevant is in the Oozie Dashboard -> Oozie -> gauges

It has a value "configuration.action.types" that appear to list action nodes, except it has more listed than what is actually showing up on the editor; I am logged in as a super user when viewing this.

 

If that is the correct property, how do i modify it (preferably through CDH or Hue)?

 

Thanks!

Re: Limit Available Action Nodes in Oozie Workflow Editor in HUE

Hue's access permission model does not yet allow you to control action types - just the Oozie app on the whole. This would be a feature request if you're looking to control this at a specific user/group level. You can log a JIRA with your desired use-case in detail at https://issues.cloudera.org/browse/HUE.

If you're instead looking to ban the whole action, you can reconfigure Oozie Server's oozie-site.xml to override the default list of 'extra' action executors: https://github.com/cloudera/oozie/blob/cdh5.10.0-release/core/src/main/resources/oozie-default.xml#L.... The action type icons may still appear on the Hue UI but running them would fail.
