Location of Nifi Registry's provider.xml on Cloudera Manager

Hello everyone,

 

Does anybody know where I can configure a new flow persistence provider for Nifi Registry using Cloudera Manager? I tried the escape valve for staging/providers.xml, but I get a validation error if I enter the required value to integrate NiFi Registry with Git:

 

<flowPersistenceProvider>

<class>org.apache.nifi.registry.provider.flow.git.GitFlowPersistenceProvider</class>

<property name="Flow Storage Directory">{{nifi_registry_internal_dir}}/git/perso-recognition-nifi-flows</property>

<property name="Remote To Push">origin</property>

<property name="Remote Access User">paulvid</property>

<property name="Remote Access Password">[your_key]</property>

</flowPersistenceProvider>

 

I'm following this guide to configure Nifi Registry with Git: https://community.hortonworks.com/articles/222365/how-to-configure-git-for-nifi-registry-in-hdf-32.h... , but the xml configuration differs from Ambari to Cloudera Manager.

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: Location of Nifi Registry's provider.xml on Cloudera Manager

I was able to make CM generate the correct providers.xml by using the properties below:

nifi_service.PNG

 

Which results on the following providers.xml:

 

 

[root@nifi1 399-nifiregistry-NIFI_REGISTRY_SERVER]# cat providers.xml

<providers>

    <flowPersistenceProvider>
    <class>org.apache.nifi.registry.provider.flow.FileSystemFlowPersistenceProvider</class>
    <property name="Flow Storage Directory">/var/lib/nifiregistry/flow_storage</property>

</flowPersistenceProvider>

    <flowPersistenceProvider>
    <class>org.apache.nifi.registry.provider.flow.git.GitFlowPersistenceProvider</class>
    <property name="Remote Access User">yyy</property>
    <property name="Flow Storage Directory">/var/lib/nifi-registry/git/nifi_registry_demo</property>
    <property name="Remote Access Password">xxx</property>
    <property name="Remote to Push">origin</property>

</flowPersistenceProvider>

 

But now I'm getting this error starting the Nifi service:
