Configure NiFi

About This Task

You use the NiFi tab in the Customize Services step to configure Apache NiFi. Generally, you can accept the defaults during initial installation. However, there are some settings that you must set before proceeding.


  1. From Advanced-nifi-ambari-config, specify the Encrypt Configuration Master Key Passwords.

    This password is used when you generate the master key for sensitive properties encryption in the NiFi properties file when it is written to disk. It must contain at least 12 characters.

  2. From Advanced-nifi-ambari-config, provide the Sensitive property values encryption password.

    This is the password used when you encrypt any sensitive property values that are configured in processors. For enhanced security, it should contain at least 10 characters.
