Parameter Contexts

Parameters are created within Parameter Contexts. Parameter Contexts are globally defined/accessible to the NiFi instance. Access policies can be applied to Parameter Contexts to determine which users can create them. Once created, policies to read and write to a specific Parameter Context can also be applied (see Accessing Parameters for more information).

Creating a Parameter Context

To create a Parameter Context, select Parameter Contexts from the Global Menu:

In the Parameter Contexts window, click the + button in the upper-right corner and the Add Parameter Context window opens. The window has two tabs: Settings and Parameters.

On the "Settings" tab, add a name for the Parameter Context and a description if desired. Select "Apply" to save the Parameter Context or select the "Parameters" tab to add parameters to the context.
