Apache Nifi Web UI Setup

New Contributor

Hello. I've been following this tutorial (https://www.batchiq.com/nifi-configuring-ssl-auth.html) to the best of my ability, yet the web UI still does not want to start. I get the error message ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED" when trying to access the nifi server through Google Chrome. It has also been this way when trying to access through Firefox, so I suppose this is more of a server error than anything else. The following is a relevant section of my conf file...

 

# web properties #
nifi.web.war.directory=./lib
#nifi.web.http.host=
#nifi.web.http.port=8080
nifi.web.http.network.interface.default=
nifi.web.https.host=
nifi.web.https.port=8443
nifi.web.https.network.interface.default=
nifi.web.jetty.working.directory=./work/jetty
nifi.web.jetty.threads=200
nifi.web.max.header.size=16 KB
nifi.web.proxy.context.path=
nifi.web.proxy.host=

 

 

# security properties #
nifi.sensitive.props.key=SyoerSecretFlyingPassword
nifi.sensitive.props.key.protected=SuperSecretFlyingPassword
nifi.sensitive.props.algorithm=PBEWITHMD5AND256BITAES-CBC-OPENSSL
nifi.sensitive.props.provider=BC
nifi.sensitive.props.additional.keys=

nifi.security.keystore=server_keystore.js
nifi.security.keystoreType=JKS
nifi.security.keystorePasswd=SuperSecret
nifi.security.keyPasswd=SuperSecret
nifi.security.truststore=server_trustore.jks
nifi.security.truststoreType=JKS
nifi.security.truststorePasswd=SuperSecret
nifi.security.user.authorizer=managed-authorizer
nifi.security.user.login.identity.provider=
nifi.security.ocsp.responder.url=
nifi.security.ocsp.responder.certificate=


And here is the part of my log where the error message shows up...

The problem you are facing is well known with nifi "There was an issue decrypting protected properties" It seems you can't decrypt the password in the nifi.properties  have a look at this link nifi .properties especially read carefully  3. Setting-up/Migrating encryption key you might need to run encrypt-config.sh script 

 

Please let me know if you need more help
