Put log4j on HDFS path and then use HDFS path in workflow to override.

Sample log4j file:

# Define some default values that can be overridden by system properties
hadoop.root.logger=DEBUG,CLA


# Define the root logger to the system property "hadoop.root.logger".
log4j.rootLogger=${hadoop.root.logger}, EventCounter


# Logging Threshold
log4j.threshold=ALL


#
# ContainerLog Appender

#Default values
yarn.app.container.log.dir=null
yarn.app.container.log.filesize=100


log4j.appender.CLA=org.apache.hadoop.yarn.ContainerLogAppender
log4j.appender.CLA.containerLogDir=${yarn.app.container.log.dir}
log4j.appender.CLA.totalLogFileSize=${yarn.app.container.log.filesize}

log4j.appender.CRLA.containerLogDir=${yarn.app.container.log.dir}

log4j.appender.CRLA.maxBackupIndex=${yarn.app.container.log.backups}
log4j.appender.CRLA.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout
log4j.appender.CRLA.layout.ConversionPattern=%d{ISO8601} %p [%t] %c: %m%n


#
# Event Counter Appender
# Sends counts of logging messages at different severity levels to Hadoop Metrics.

log4j.appender.EventCounter=org.apache.hadoop.log.metrics.EventCounter

Sample Workflow.xml:

<workflow-app name="javaaction" xmlns="uri:oozie:workflow:0.5">
    <global>
        <job-tracker>${jobTracker}</job-tracker>
        <name-node>${nameNode}</name-node>
    </global>
    <start to="java-action"/>
    <kill name="kill">
        <message>Action failed, error message[${wf:errorMessage(wf:lastErrorNode())}]</message>
    </kill>
    <action name="java-action">
        <java>
            <configuration>
                <property>

                    <value>true</value>
                </property>
