sqoop job run via oozie

  • #30134

    Does anyone can run sqoop job via oozie successfully?
    I create a sqoop job to import data from oracle incremental by id,the command is :
    sqoop job –create stujob — import –hive-import –connect jdbc:oracle:thin:@ –username SCOTT –password tiger -m 1 –table STUDENT –check-column SID –incremental append –last-value 0
    then I can run bin/sqoop job –exec stujob successfully,but the task can’t run successfully via oozie

    2098 [main] ERROR org.apache.sqoop.manager.OracleManager – Failed to list columns
    java.sql.SQLException: ORA-01005: null password given; logon denied

    at oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver.connect(

    It seems that the oozie can’t know the password of the oracle define in the job,the document said :you have to set sqoop.metastore.client.record.password to true if you are executing saved jobs via Oozie because Sqoop cannot prompt the user to enter passwords while being executed as Oozie tasks.
    I do have set the sqoop.metastore.client.record.password to be true

    If true, allow saved passwords in the metastore.
