Oozie via Hue: Sqoop Eval Failing

  • #43366
    Nick Martin

    I can successfully run Sqoop imports and exports via a workflow in Oozie, but I’m having trouble with the Sqoop -eval statement in Hue(Oozie). When I attempt to run a Sqoop -eval task I get “error parsing arguments for eval”. I’ve tried running both the command text version and inputting individual params and get errors with both. I should note that when I execute the same Sqoop -eval task I’m attempting in Hue in shell it runs perfectly fine.


    Sqoop command arguments :
    –username xxx
    –password xxx

    >>> Invoking Sqoop command line now >>>
