Integrating NiFi and NiFi Registry with Knox

Integrate NiFi and NiFi Registry with Knox to securely access NiFi and NiFi Registry nodes.

Apache Knox Gateway (Knox) provides the following benefits:

  • Centralized access to all services in the cluster.
  • Authentication with single sign-on.
  • Service-level authorization to the cluster.
  • Does not expose the service endpoints such as URLs, ports, IP addresses.
When you integrate NiFi and NiFi Registry with Knox, you can use the Knox URL as a single entry point to securely access all NiFi nodes and switch nodes if one fails.

For information more information on Knox, see Apache Knox Overview.

For information on how to select Knox during the NiFi and NiFi Registry installation, see CFM Deployment.
