Hi All,

I have been using Nifi to setup some pipelines now. Before I can absorb
more use cases into this, I need to understand a few capabilities

1) Can we setup an user authentication before the web application. If yes,
is there a way we can have role based access for processor groups. I would
like certain teams working on only specific groups and not control all.

2) If the major use case would only involve reading from RMQ, KAFKA convert
to parquet and store in S3, does it make sense to setup a cluster or just
vertical scaling is good ?

3) Are the flow files in the queues (connections between processors)
persisted?. Any machine failure or restart would cause a loss of data ? For
instance messages are dequeued form RMQ and lost due to failure. Which
would be a best way to handle this ? I think maintaining a low back
pressure (threshold) can help mitigate the loss

4) Does the Kafka consumer, by default consume all partitions or is there a
way to control that.

5) Can we have some of the metrics of processors pushed out as
notifications or alerts (flow file count in / out or errors etc)

It would be great, if someone could share resources that address these.

Thanks in advance.
