Increase Hue Oozie Dashboard Job Entries

On Hue Oozie dashboard, by default you only see 100 entries for workflow jobs.
This won’t help if you have too many jobs running and want to take a look at jobs failed/killed, for example, two days ago.

How to increase the number of entries you see?

Open the file /etc/hue/conf/hue.ini on Hadoop master node.
Update the following entry in the file to a number you wish. Here I increased to 500.

# Maximum of Oozie workflows or coordinators to retrieve in one API call.
oozie_jobs_count=500

And then restart the Hue service using the commands below.

sudo /sbin/stop hue
sudo /sbin/start hue

Note: Those steps for AWS EMR. Other Hadoop distributions might have different ways of setting the config parameters.
