Configuring NiFi Web UI connection

Learn about configuring a connection to the NiFi web UI.

You can configure a connection to the NiFi Web UI using the spec.uiConnection field. It is a standard connection field with special validation and handling. The name of this connection is always ignored and set to [***CR NAME***]-web. For Ingress type connections, a maximum of one path may be specified. When you configure a uiConnection, the spec.hostname field is required.

The uiConnection can support hostname routing with and without an additional context path. It is not recommended to use a context path for routing as NiFi does not support it well, but it is possible. For more information, see NiFi documentation on proxy configuration. An example using ingress-nginx is included in this section.
