Oozie in hue hasn't got shell action




After some actions in a cluster, oozie in hue hasn't got shell action in the ACTIONS tab. It has only HIVE SCRIPT ,HIVESERVER2 SCRIPT, SUB WORKFLOW, SSH, FS, EMAIL, STREAMING, GENERIC, KILL. Is there any way to run my shell script now?


My oozie version is 5.1.0-cdh6.3.4

Hi @drgenious ,


When you open the Oozie Editor, notice that the default line of icons shown at the top of the editor are "Documents" rather than "Actions".


Documents enable to embed content you created previously in your Oozie workflows (saved Hive queries, Spark programs, Java programs, etc.).

If you click on the "DOCUMENTS" word, you will see a drop-down with the "Actions" selection. Clicking on it will switch the line of Document icons with the Action icons you're looking for:

Hi @drgenious  please change the dropdown option then you can 

1) Document ---> Actions 

2) then select shell and write your script. 

3) if this option is not coming then check with the Cloudera patch.
