Subject Re: Upgrade Nifi from 0.6 to 1.0
Date Sat, 03 Dec 2016 18:52:17 GMT

NiFi version changes are intentionally designed to be backwards compatible when possible,
and unless something in the migration notes specifically applies to your flow, you should
be fine. You can copy the conf/flow.xml.gz file directly to the new instance.

inconsistency between data flows in different versions and less about architectural changes
or other changes.  My question would be is there any problem might happen during this process?
For example, some changes in the template format or flow names or other changes I should be
aware of.

the migration guide [1], as there are substantial changes introduced in the 1.x versions which
you should be aware of. Some of the biggest are the new multi tenant authorization model [2]
and the zero master cluster model. As you were not using clustering in 0.x, you do not need
to worry about ZMC as it will work by default. There is a capability [3] to migrate the existing
“legacy” authorized-users.xml to users.xml and authorizations.xml, which support the new

processors require that they run only on the primary node for synchronization issues, like
ListFile, but this is documented in the processor info) and most flows are the same on standalone
instances as they are on clusters.

Cluster instead of Nifi standalone. Is it possible to use the data flows which are created
for the older version of Nifi standalone on the newer version of Nifi Cluster?
