Installing and starting NiFi Registry manually

You can install NiFi Registry as a stand-alone application on a Linux operating system.

  1. Decompress and untar the installation files into the desired installation directory.
  2. Make any desired edits in files found under <installdir>/conf
  3. From the <installdir>/bin directory, run the following commands by typing ./nifi-registry.sh <command>:
    • start: starts NiFi Registry in the background
    • stop: stops NiFi Registry that is running in the background
    • status: provides the current status of NiFi Registry
    • run: runs NiFi Registry in the foreground and waits for a Ctrl-C to initiate shutdown of NiFi Registry
    • install: installs NiFi Registry as a service that can then be controlled via
      • service nifi-registry start

      • service nifi-registry stop

      • service nifi-registry status

When NiFi Registry first starts up, the following directories are created:

  • flow_storage
