NiFi Authorization
Also available as:

Authorizer Configuration

An authorizer grants users the privileges to manage users and policies by creating preliminary authorizations at startup.

Authorizers are configured using two properties in the file:

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