Hi Manish,


NiFi Documentation can be found here [1]. Of particular relevance to you is likely the Getting
Started [2] and Admin Guide [3] sections.


Installation to your EC2 instance will depend on what AMI you are running, but assuming you
are using a Linux-based AMI it should be fairly straightforward following the steps in those
guides. Likely the only dependency you will have to install is Java 8 (last I checked, the
standard Amazon Linux distros have Java 7 installed by default, but a the java-1.8.0-openjdk
package is available in the default package repositories). Again, this will depend on the
AMI you are using, which may / may not have Java 8.


A browser is not required to be installed on the EC2 instance running NiFi; it is only required
on the client machine(s) that you will use to access the NiFi UI.


Once you have the dependencies installed, download NiFi [4] and follow the steps for installing,
configuring, and running in the aforementioned documentation. If you run into any trouble,
post back to this list.

Subject: Apache Nifi installation on a new EC2


Hi Team -

Does anyone have steps to install Nifi on a brand new EC2 (assuming root user). Would I also
need to install a browser separately to run nifi for development?


Any documentation or steps will be helpful.
