------------------------------------

             Summary: Unable to view Component ID of "unknown" components in a provenance
lineage graph.
                 Key: NIFI-2769
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NIFI-2769
             Project: Apache NiFi
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Core Framework
    Affects Versions: 1.0.0
            Reporter: Matthew Clarke
            Priority: Minor


NiFi lineage that includes unknown components does not provide the minimum level of information
needed to troubleshoot a dataflow in a secured NiFi user level component access policies.
 Clicking on "view details" of an "unknown" component in a lineage graph returns an unauthorized
response. User Should be able to at least retrieve the UUID for the unknown components.

An example use case:
A user (user M) has permissions to a process group with an input port.  That input port is
fed by many different parent level connections from other components user M does not have
permission to.  If user M performs a lineage search against a single FlowFile, it is not possible
for user M to determine which of source connections the data came from.  This makes troubleshooting
difficult as user must query all source dataflow users to do queries to see if they were the
source of the data.
