Nifi 1.11.4 sensitive parameter not persist


Nifi 1.11.4 sensitive parameter not persist

New Contributor

I am using 1.11.4, and I have two Nifi installation on totally different place, one in docker container and the other on AWS ubuntu.  I am running into persistent issue with sensitive parameter. 


1. Create a a parameter context, e.g.  my_parameter_context. 

2. Create a sensitive parameter, e.g. mypassword, in  "my_parameter_context" 

3. Assign my_parameter_context to my processing group, e.g. MyProcessGroup

4. In MyProcessGroup,  i have a GetSFTP a processor

5. In the property of GetSFTP process,  assign password to #{mypassword}.   The assignment is sucessful and at right column, there is an arrow "->" indicating the value is point to parameter.

6. Click Apply.  However, the "arrow" is no longer there (see pic below) when I open the property of GetSFTP again.  Value field indicates "Sensitive value set".   The GetSFTP process failed complain authentication failure. 

7. The GetSFTP processor works if I input password directly. 


Any help will be appreciated.
