Subject Re: Upgrade Nifi from 0.6 to 1.0
Date Sat, 03 Dec 2016 03:43:39 GMT
Hi Ali,

You can upgrade between NiFi 0.6 and 1.0 (although we’d recommend you go to 1.1.0 which
was just released this week and had 265 issues fixed / features added since 1.0). Follow 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

I’d recommend upgrading your standalone node first and once you’re comfortable with the
new UI and that you have configured the flow and user access policies the way you want, then
spread to a cluster. The flows will migrate with very little interaction (some 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.

from the older version to the newer one or not? Moreover, I want to install Nifi 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?
