Oozie : Sending emails

Oozie has a feature which allows sending emails in Oozie from a workflow application.

For example :-

In your workflow.xml, include the following action.

<action name=”sendEmail”>
<email xmlns=”uri:oozie:email-action:0.1″>
<subject>WF Success</subject>
<body>WF Successfully executed</body>
<ok to=”end”/>
<error to=”kill”/>


**Multiple Email Addressess: comma separated with space.

xyz@ab.com , zxc@ab.com

Edit your oozie-site.xml to include the following properties

oozie.email.smtp.host : mailer.efg.com

oozie.email.smtp.port : 25

oozie.email.from.address : oozie@whatever.com

The actual syntax to customize your email action :-

<workflow-app name=”[WF-DEF-NAME]” xmlns=”uri:oozie:workflow:0.1″>

<action name=”[NODE-NAME]”>
<email xmlns=”uri:oozie:email-action:0.1″>
<cc>[COMMA-SEPARATED-CC-ADDRESSES]</cc> <!– cc is optional –>
<ok to=”[NODE-NAME]”/>
<error to=”[NODE-NAME]”/>


Enjoy emailing 😉
