Subject [jira] [Created] (MINIFI-424) Expose bootstrap properties in the ConfigTransformer
Date Fri, 12 Jan 2018 23:27:00 GMT
Joseph Percivall created MINIFI-424:

             Summary: Expose bootstrap properties in the ConfigTransformer
                 Key: MINIFI-424
             Project: Apache NiFi MiNiFi
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Joseph Percivall
            Assignee: Joseph Percivall

The ConfigTransformer takes in the config.yml and creates the and flow.xml.
In order to better support customizations on a per MiNiFi instance for things that aren't
able to reference EL, we could expose the properties listed in the bootstrap.conf. 

As an example, the bootstrap conf could have properties identifying the S2S URL and port UUID
to use. Then when MiNiFi pulls down the new config.yml it would translate the keys to their
proper values as identified in the bootstrap.conf.

The main unknown is what the "escape" identifiers would be. In EL it is "${.....}". This would
need to be specific enough that it doesn't collide with anything that'd be in the config.yml.

Much further down the line, this could eventually evolve to expose ENV variables, key/values
stored in a file, and maybe even basic functions as needed. Essentially a basic version of
EL but I hesitate to call it that b/c I don't want users to expect all of that functionality.
This should really be for things that can't be done via EL.
