Subject [jira] [Created] (NIFI-7004) Improve configuration of Nifi
Date Thu, 09 Jan 2020 22:03:00 GMT
Sushil Kumar created NIFI-7004:
----------------------------------

             Summary: Improve configuration of Nifi
                 Key: NIFI-7004
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NIFI-7004
             Project: Apache NiFi
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Configuration, Configuration Management
    Affects Versions: 1.10.0
            Reporter: Sushil Kumar


There are 2 configuration files which provides nifi for a lot of config values.

bootstrap.conf

nifi.properties

The nifi system does not provides an easy way to override the values in these config files.

Generally the applications are designed in a way to override or use configs from environment
values and config-files

It may be that this was not such a big problem when running Nifi on baremetals and managing
a machine as an independent machine. However, when one thinks of automating or scripting these
operator functions of start/shutdown nodes, add/remove nodes, change configuration values,
then it becomes difficult for an operator to manage files on all nodes.

I am looking ahead to Nifi to add some way to read these values from environment variables
or config-files.
