Behavioral changes

Learn about the change in behavior in Cloudera Flow Management (CFM) 2.1.5.

In CFM 2.1.5, the default algorithm used for encrypting NiFi sensitive properties in the NiFi flow configuration file has changed to a new one to provide greater encryption security.

If you are using Cloudera Manager to upgrade to CFM 2.1.5, it will automatically take care of this algorithm change. However, if you are migrating to CFM 2.1.5 and you are manually moving the NiFi files to the new CFM 2.1.5 cluster, you need to update the encryption algorithm. For instructions, see Updating encryption algorithm for sensitive properties.
