How many job.properties per workflow, coordinator and bundle for Oozie?

Hello all,

I have around 20 workflows with a lot of dependencies between them. Can I have one job.properties for 20 Workflows?

How about coordinator and bundle? Should I use the same job.properties?

Or Do I need to have job.properties for each Workflow, each Coordinator and Bundle?

for example :

/bundle.xml

/job.properties (for bundle properties)

/workflowA

/coordinator.xml

/workflow.xml

/job.properties

/workflowB

/coordinator.xml

/workflow.xml

/job.properties

Please give me advise.

Thanks

job.properties only contains properties to be propagated to your workflows, so small answer is yes you can have a single job.properties for your 20 workflows.

Bundle and coordinators requires other parameters (like start/endDate) so it's better to have a specific job.properties for them
