Oozie: How to pass current date to Work Flow


<coordinator-app name=”oozie-coordinator” frequency=”1440″ start=”2017-10-06T15:00Z” end=”2099-09-19T13:00Z” timezone=”Canada/Eastern” xmlns=”uri:oozie:coordinator:0.1″>

<value>${coord:formatTime(coord:dateOffset(coord:nominalTime(), 0,
‘DAY’), “yyyyMMdd”)}


**Change “0” to -1 if you prefer PREVIOUS DATE

Access currentDate in your workflow.xml and pass it to your shell / ssh action

<ssh xmlns=”uri:oozie:ssh-action:0.1″>






Use it in your shell script


touch $1
