Can't get Oozie to work with Sqoop actions and MySQL (CDH 5.13.1)


Can't get Oozie to work with Sqoop actions and MySQL (CDH 5.13.1)

Expert Contributor

Hi everyone!

I have cluster with CDH 5.13.1 installed thorugh Cloudera Manager with Parcel option.


I am having some troubles to get Oozie working properly with Sqoop actions and MySQL database.


Just after CDH installation I searched if a mysql jar connector was already present in the system, I found it in 



so I just copied that file and place it in /var/lib/sqoop/ to enable Sqoop import from MySQL. After that Sqoop can sucessfully connect to MySQL db, for example the following sqoop command in the shell works fine:




sqoop list-tables --driver com.mysql.jdbc.Driver --connect jdbc:mysql:// --username cloudera --password-file /user/cloudera/pwd


where /user/cloudera/pwd is the hdfs path to the file where I've placed the MySQL password.


Then I've tried to configure a workflow with the same Sqoop command.

I've added the  mysql-connector-java-5.1.15.jar file to the oozie share lib in hdfs, and set owner and permissions:

I've also checked in the Cloudera Manager console if the Oozie share lib was properly configured: 







This is the workflow file

        <error to="fail"/>

	<kill name="fail">

But I got an error, it seems Oozie can't find the driver for mysql. From the yarn logs I can read:

Any idea why it can't find the driver, although I put the connector in the share lib with proper ownership and permissions and in the the following property is set to true?



What am I doing wrong?


Thanks for any help!

It's a Oozie ShareLib problem. The script below works for my:


**At Shell**

sudo -u hdfs hadoop fs -chown cloudera:cloudera /user/oozie/share/lib/lib_20170719053712/sqoop
hdfs dfs -put /var/lib/sqoop/mysql-connector-java.jar /user/oozie/share/lib/lib_20170719053712/sqoop
sudo -u hdfs hadoop fs -chown oozie:oozie /user/oozie/share/lib/lib_20170719053712/sqoop

oozie admin -oozie http://localhost:11000/oozie -sharelibupdate
oozie admin -oozie http://localhost:11000/oozie -shareliblist sqoop


**At Hue Sqoop Client**

sqoop list-tables --connect jdbc:mysql://localhost/retail_db --username root --password cloudera
