Cannot access details of Tez jobs in Hue job browser

  • #52792

    Any tez jobs that I start in HDP Sandbox 2.1 are listed in the hue job browser, but the job details are not accessible.

    http://localhost:8000/jobbrowser/jobs/application_1399046341271_0002 produces following output:

    Could not find job application_1399046341271_0002. The job might not be running yet.
    Job job_1399046341271_0002 could not be found: {"RemoteException":{"exception":"NotFoundException","message":"java.lang.Exception: job, job_1399046341271_0002, is not found","javaClassName":"org.apache.hadoop.yarn.webapp.NotFoundException"}} (error 404)

    From the logs, it seems that the job browser makes the correct call, but cannot interpret the result:

    [02/May/2014 09:48:30 +0000] http_client DEBUG GET
    [02/May/2014 09:48:30 +0000] access INFO hue - "GET /jobbrowser/jobs/application_1399046341271_0011 HTTP/1.0"
    [02/May/2014 09:48:30 +0000] resource DEBUG GET Got response: {"apps":null}

    When I execute this call manually, I get the following result:

    [root@sandbox ~]# curl
    {"app":{"id":"application_1399046341271_0011", [...]

    It seems that hue job browser is expecting an additional “apps” key in the json result instead of looking directly at “app”.

    Hi Michael,

    Currently you cannot see Tez jobs in the Job Browser in Hue

    Are there any plans to add this functionality and upgrade to latest hue 3 version as well? Basic features in HUE 3.7 if compiled from sources just work. See this link for additional info
    We are really missing a good UI the cloudera guys have.


    Hi Krzysztof,

    Yes, you can use the URL provided to implement Hue on HDP. However HDP will soon incorporate it’s own UI which will be managed via Ambari.

    Hi Dave,

    Thank you for info. Waiting for the new UI then and I will keep my fingers crossed for SPARK support :)
