Looking for a UI based (API is also welcome) workflow creation and management framework. I have found Azkaban from LinkedIn. Planning to evaluate few before choosing one.


  • UI based workflow mgmt
  • auth and authorization based on LDAP
  • audit log of all actions
  • support for Spark, hadoop/clouded/Cassandra/scripts
  • dependency management

Apache Airflow is a workflow management tool.

Workflows are defined as DAGs using a Python based DSL.

It's more generic than Azkaban, providing operators for several tools (python, bash, SQL, Docker amongst others).

No integration with LDAP so far.
