How to access kerberos NIFI cluster with nifi api of python https

Contributor

HI,

We have a kerberos enabled FDT cluster, I want to access the nifi api through https of python. But I cannot got it.

I don't know how to put the parameter, self.key, and self.cert: how to get the private key, and the certificate chain.

 httplib.HTTPSConnection(host,key_file=self.key,cert_file=self.cert,timeout=timeout)

there is my https config

Could you give me any point. Thanks.

According to Python documentation, using key_file and cert_file is deprecated, they recommend you pass in a context (one that has been configured by calling load_cert_chain). You'll need a certfile and a keyfile there too, which you can get using various openssl commands (assuming you have openssl installed). For example, to export a client secret key from a PKCS12 keystore to a PEM file:

openssl pkcs12 -in CN=<something_you_typed>_OU=Apache NiFi.p12 -nodes -nocerts -out client.key

Or to export a server private key from a JKS keystore to a PEM file:

keytool -importkeystore -srckeystore <keystore.jks> -destkeystore keystore.p12 -deststoretype PKCS12

openssl pkcs12 -in keystore.p12 -nodes -nocerts -out nifi.key

Or to export a CA cert from a JKS keystore to a PEM file:

keytool -export -alias <your_alias> -file ca.der -keystore <truststore.jks>

openssl x509 -inform der -in ca.der -out ca.pem

Thanks for your response.

For me I cannot got the first step of client secret key, there is not CN<something_you_typed>_OU=ApacheNiFi.p12

file , I just do the second step :

keytool -importkeystore -srckeystore <keystore.jks> -destkeystore keystore.p12 -deststoretype PKCS12
openssl pkcs12 -in keystore.p12 -out nifi-01.pem -nodes

So I put the nifi-01.pem to :

conn=httplib.HTTPSConnection('nifi-test01.beta1.fn', 9091, key_file=None, cert_file="nifi-01.pem")

and it works.

BTW , I really don't need to put username and password and I can access the rest get api.

Of course, I did not to use post or delete api, is it the correct behavior?

Thanks again.
