is there some recommended or tested way how to run Apache Nifi as a Windows Service?
All I can find is:
"Currently, installing NiFi as a service is supported only for Linux and Mac OS X users."
I would like to have Apache Nifi running in a way that will automatically start on Windows Server when OS starts and shutdown on OS suhtdown. Having this as a standard system service would be nice but not necessary.
To fix the issue I created a Task to Run NiFi in windows task scheduler , and selected the option to "Run whether user is logged on or not"
I haven't used the above for NiFi but used win-scheduler. (commons daemon was easy to add to mina sshd so probably easy for NiFi too)
using windows scheduler works also
gpedit.msc - add stop script
another option may be
download MSI for NiFi. open it in 7zip. Extract the powershell scripts for setting up the windows service.
You can also download NiFi from here https://www.cloudera.com/downloads/hdf.html
did you make this work? Is it possible to run the Nifi as a service on Windows in some way? Please give us more detailed information about it, if you succeeded...
Can't apps like AlwaysUp or JSL work? Java Service Wrappers...
