Subject Programmatically passing secrets to nifi processor.
Date Thu, 21 Nov 2019 19:03:47 GMT

I am working on automatically starting a flow from registry in newly
created nfi clusters. To start the flow, I need to provide some secret
values to some of the processors. What is the recommended way of
programmatically provide secret of a processor?

So far, I have tried NiFi CLI to pass secrets as variables to NiFi (e.g.,
{secretName, secretValue}) and reference ${secretName} in the processor (I
am aware that NiFi does yet support encryption for secrets in variables).
However, I am unable to create a new version of the flow (from the browser)
in the registry with ${secretName} as the property value (NiFi thinks it is
a secret and does not include it in the new version). I was hoping that
NiFi CLI have a way to update flow in registry with ${secretName} as secret
value. However, I did not find a way to to do it.

I am a newbie to nifi. Any help regarding this is greatly appreciated. I
have seen there are several similar open issues in nifi. I am willing to
work on those issues if my scenario is not supported.
