  2. In the New Folder wizard, name your Job folder getting_started and click Finish to create your folder.
  3. Right-click the getting_started folder and select Create folder again.
  4. In the New Folder wizard, name the new folder to mapreduce and click Finish to create the folder.
  5. Right-click the mapreduce folder and select Create Big Data Batch Job.
  6. In the New Big Data Batch Job wizard, select MapReduce from the Framework drop-down list.
  7. Enter a name for this MapReduce Job and other useful information.
