How do I update mime.types for IdentifyMimeType?,How do I add a new mime type?

We receive data in a custom format. Sometimes it is compressed, sometimes it isn't. I would like to add the custom format to mime.types for cleaner routing maps, but just adding to /etc/mime.types does not seem to work. Does IdentifyMimeType use a custom/nifi database? If so, how can it be updated?

We are receiving data in a custom format. I would like to add that format to mime.types so IdentifyMimeTypes would recognize it. Adding to /etc/mime.types does not seem to be recognized by Nifi. Is it maintaining its own mime.types cache? If so, how can I add to it?
