Currently Kylin retrieves jobs status via a resource manager web service like
It is not most robust. Some user does not have "yarn.resourcemanager.webapp.address" set in yarm-site.xml, then get status will fail out-of-box. They have to set a Kylin property "kylin.job.yarn.app.rest.check.status.url" to overcome, which is not user friendly.
Kerberos authentication might cause problem too if security is enabled.
Is there a more robust way to check job status? Via Job API?
