Apache Nifi Docker container volumes location

Apache Nifi Docker container volumes location

New Contributor

Hello,

 

I downloaded the apache/nifi docker image from Docker Hub website and designed an application inside the container that I want to save as a template to use later. When I try to save a template, the Nifi UI doesn't ask me to choose the save location, only a message that confirms the creation is shown.

When I try to inspect the volumes of the container by running "docker inspect volume-name", the following volumes are shown:

henrique_yda_1-1587671689088.png

henrique_yda_2-1587671760611.png

 

Are these volumes created by default with the docker image? Is my template being saved in these volumes? How can I access them?

 

Thanks!

NiFi Templates are stored within flow.xml.gz file, you can refer to below screenshot from NIFi Documentation.

flow.xml.gz is stored in the <</conf >>directory. In your case I can see the mount point is pointing to <</opt/nifi/nifi-current/conf >>directory

 

The best way to manage Templates are from "Global Menu"->Templates
