Fix Version/s: None
Note: I've originally discovered this in the latest HDP version 2.6.4, which uses Ambari 2.6.1 afaik.
When creating a coordinator job in the Workflow Manager, you can select a start and an end date. The problem is that the date is in the wrong format for the Oozie backend. When I click on a date/time in the calendar, it appears like this:
"04/10/2018 03:55 PM"
When submitting the coordinator job the following error appears in the log:
From looking at the code it looks like the web interface uses the wrong date mask? See here for the JS from the workflow manager: https://github.com/apache/ambari/blame/trunk/contrib/views/wfmanager/src/main/resources/ui/app/components/date-with-expr.js#L55
The backend code checks against this date format: https://github.com/apache/oozie/blame/4a05898518af353a36465805099c947918bf7d50/core/src/main/java/org/apache/oozie/util/DateUtils.java#L46
So the format does not match and thus the error.
