Subject [jira] [Created] (AMBARI-7507) Oozie external DB properties are exported with hostname information
Date Fri, 26 Sep 2014 01:35:33 GMT
Robert Nettleton created AMBARI-7507:

             Summary: Oozie external DB properties are exported with hostname information
                 Key: AMBARI-7507
             Project: Ambari
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: ambari-server
    Affects Versions: 1.6.0
            Reporter: Robert Nettleton
            Assignee: Robert Nettleton
             Fix For: 1.7.0

The Blueprint export configuration processor incorrectly handles the case of two Oozie configuration
properties that are only used when Oozie is configured to point towards an existing MYSQL
database, rather than have Ambari create the DB during the cluster startup. 

The properties involved are: 




Currently, after a cluster starts up with these configuration properties set to an external
DB server, an attempt to export a Blueprint based on this cluster will cause these properties
to be included in the Blueprint.  These properties will include the hostname information for
the external DB. 

In general, this is not very useful for a Blueprint, since this information may vary from
cluster to cluster, so the Blueprint processor should remove these properties from the Blueprint
during the export process.  Since the external DB server is not part of a defined Host group,
the processor cannot assign a logical host group name instead of the actual host name, so
removing the properties is the only way to keep this host information out of the exported

These Oozie properties are generally either pointing to a default, local, in-memory DB, or
to an external DB, to the normal property update mechanism won't really apply here.  

The BlueprintConfigurationProcessor needs to be updated so that these properties are removed
from the exported Blueprint during the export process.  

I'm working on a fix for this, and will be submitting a patch soon.
