Oozie script action containing Sqoop import failing

New Contributor

I am trying to make an oozie workflow action to import data from mysql using sqoop through a shell script (CDH 5.8).


Workflow steps:
1. Delete any existing directories.

2. Java action reads the metadata hive tables and creates table_metadata directory and the *.cf file.

2. Shell script iterates through the table_metadata directory and scan for config files (*.cf). Each file contains a table name to be imported. Then it grabs the table name into the table_name variable which is used in the sqoop import query.


The same script containing Sqoop works fine when I run it from the command line as (sh


However, when I try to run as a workflow through the Oozie (Cloudera Hue GUI) script action, it fails with following error.


Any ideas why Oozie job failing?

Shell Script:


hdfs_path='hdfs://quickstart.cloudera:8020/user/cloudera/workflow/table_metadata' table_temp_path='hdfs://quickstart.cloudera:8020/user/cloudera/workflow/hive_temp 
if $(hadoop fs -test -e $hdfs_path)
for file in $(hadoop fs -ls $hdfs_path | grep -o -e "$hdfs_path/*.*");
echo ${file}
TABLENAME=$(hadoop fs -cat ${file});
sqoop import --connect jdbc:mysql://quickstart.cloudera:3306/retail_db --table departments --username=retail_dba --password=cloudera --direct -m 1 --delete-target-dir --target-dir $table_temp_path
