Subject Re: Controller services visibility problem
Date Thu, 17 Nov 2016 15:21:44 GMT
Hello Panos,
With the 1.0.0 update, security policies were added to process groups and controller level
features. This means that there is now a difference between creating a Controller Service
(CS) which is scoped to the controller (ie. for Reporting tasks) and creating a CS which is
scoped to a process group. 
So in order to create a CS that is available to all processors, just create it in the root
process group. All processors will be able to reference it since they are all within the scope
of the root group.

We are using NiFi 1.0 over http without any authentication, so all our users are coming to
NiFi as anonymous. 
The problem we are having is of controller services visibility. So if we create a controller
service (say database connection) from the top right option of the canvas, this is not visible
within a group of processors. Also the contrary is also true, if we create a controller service
for a group of processors, this is not visible to the rest of the canvas.
Is there a way to assign visibility for a controller service, e.g. set global visibility for
a service, so that we don’t have to recreate it in all the groups of processors that need
As a side note, we didn't have this problem with NiFi versions before 1.0. 
Many thanks,
