This article describes new features added to CA Workload Automation AE in Release 11.3.6 SP3.
New Job Types
CA WA Advanced Integration for Hadoop lets you integrate with various distributions of Hadoop including Cloudera, Hortonworks, and Apache. You can define the following new job types using CA WA Advanced Integration for Hadoop:
Connection Profiles
A
connection profile
 is a set of attributes that are required for connecting to environments where the job runs. For example, to run a job in the Hadoop environment, you can create a connection profile with the appropriate parameters to connect to the Hadoop cluster, Oozie server, Hive database, or the Sqoop database. 
A connection profile lets you save the connection information and you can use the connection profile in the job definition. For example, when you define a Hadoop HDFS job, you can assign a connection profile to it.
For information about the JIL subcommands and attributes that you can use to define, update, and delete connection profiles, see JIL Connection Profile Definitions .
A connection profile applies to the following job types:
  • HDFS
  • Hive
  • Oozie
  • Sqoop
  • Pig
You can use web services to retrieve information of a specific connection profile or multiple connection profiles. For more information, see Managing Connection Profiles.
New as-connectionprofile Resource Class
The as-connectionprofile resource class and its default CA EEM policy with READ, CREATE, DELETE, EXECUTE, and WRITE access modes is added to control access to a connection profile.
Authenticate a User Using Key Credentials
For robust security, you can authenticate users that run Hadoop (HDFS, Hive, Oozie, Sqoop, or Pig) jobs using key credentials instead of a password. 
You can use
