in Hue I think that there is a bug. When I try to launch Oozie workflow (any type of workflow) that points with a folder that is not associated with superuser hdfs, all of the files are moved in the trash.
When submitting, Hue will update the jars and files in the 'lib' directory of its workspace. This is the same for the jars of a Java action.
The files in the trash are automatically deleted after a certain amount of time (1 day in general).
If the workflow submitted is a shared one which is not own by the user, the deployment directory is re-created each time.
In your use case, is that preventing your workflow from running properly?
I think I see what you mean: https://issues.cloudera.org/browse/HUE-1680
This happen one someones own workflow when not using a relative path for the 'Jar name' field.
This will be fixed in the next release of Hue. In the meantime:
Current workaround, don't use a full path for the jar file or don't put the 'Jar name' into lib, just put it one level up:
But a relative path:
