Workflow Manager Permission to execute workflows created by other users

New Contributor

Hi Everyone,

Is it possible to assign permission within Workflow Manager to grant permission to other users to execute the workflow created by me, other than having to share the workflow.xml file.

Thanks,

Ramesh

You can refer to the "oozie.job.acl" and refer to : https://oozie.apache.org/docs/3.2.0-incubating/WorkflowFunctionalSpec.html#a6_User_Propagation

.

Through Shell you can try something like:

HADOOP_USER_NAME=${wf:user()}


(OR)
Check if the ProxyUSer setting helps: https://community.hortonworks.com/content/supportkb/48951/how-to-run-a-oozie-job-as-a-different-user...
