Hi Mike,


Your authorizers.xml and look correct to me to establish the certificate "CN=admin,
OU=NIFI" as an admin user.


Here's one idea that you may have already thought of... the initial admin is only granted
admin policies if users/policies are empty on startup. Try deleting conf/users.xml and conf/authorizations.xml
and restarting NiFi.


Hope this helps! If you have any other questions about configuring LDAP or authorizers, let
me know.

Subject: Buttons are greyed out when initial admin account logs in


I'm following Pierre's blog post that shows how to set up LDAP w/ ApacheDS:

I've tried this with 1.4.0 and 1.5.0-SNAPSHOT (toolkits built for each too) for what it's

Built the certs with this command:

bin/ standalone -n localhost -C "CN=admin,OU=NIFI" -O -o ../security_output

Copied security_output/localhost/* to $NIFI_ROOT/conf

With or without the identity provider set to use the LDAP configuration, it's greyed out.


Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?
