Authorizer Configuration

An 'authorizer' manages known users and their access policies. Authorizers are configured using two properties in the nifi-registry.properties file:

  • The nifi.registry.security.authorizers.configuration.file property specifies the configuration file where authorizers are defined. By default, the authorizers.xml file located in the root installation conf directory is selected.

  • The nifi.registry.security.authorizer property indicates which of the configured authorizers in the authorizers.xml file to use.
