Getting Started with Apache NiFi Registry
Also available as:

For Linux/Unix/Mac OS X users

Use a Terminal window to navigate to the directory where NiFi Registry was installed. To run NiFi Registry in the foreground, run bin/ run. This will leave the application running until the user presses Ctrl-C. At that time, it will initiate shutdown of the application.

To run NiFi Registry in the background, instead run bin/ start. This will initiate the application to begin running. To check the status and see if NiFi Registry is currently running, execute the command bin/ status. NiFi Registry can be shutdown by executing the command bin/ stop.
