Subject [jira] [Commented] (NIFI-1461) RPM should create nifi user and give it access to the /opt/nifi and subdirectories
Date Wed, 10 Feb 2016 14:00:22 GMT


Joseph Witt commented on NIFI-1461:

[~trixpan] So took some time to work through my thoughts on this.  I share your view that
we should strive to provide the correct level of access and no more.  It is my understanding
actually that we're pretty close already frankly.  I'd also point out that this change is
a step in the right direction as James points out this makes it default mode to start NiFi
as a non-root user.

I do, however, feel as though the suggested concerns are not the scope of this ticket at this
stage.  I would recommend you please create a ticket for the next release and obviously I'd
be happy to help review and validate that for inclusion as would many others.  Holding this
particular step forward back on the basis of something that was true before it (there was
already an RPM) seems too strong.

I'd like to honor the effort and clear step forward that this JIRA represents and get it merged
in for the 0.5.0 release.  However, if you feel otherwise will move it to 0.6.0 so this perceived
issue has more time for discussion.

to complete the installation by adding a user and correcting filesystem permissions.
