How to run one nifi processor as super user

Contributor

Hi,

I have one nifi flow in that I am using 8-10 processor. In that 1 processor, I want to execute as superuser and rest as normal user.

Can you please help me if is there any way to do this?

Thanks

Re: How to run one nifi processor as super user

Generally all processors are executing within a single OS process started by a single user. The only case I can think of where one processor could execute at a higher level would be when using the ExecuteProcess/ExcuteStreamCommand processors... the command can be "sudo" and the args can be the command to execute. This assumes the user that started NiFi has sudo privileges.
