Nifi Registry - No Settings icone - unable to create a bucket

New Contributor

Dears,

we have seated up the Nifi Registry with our Nifi but unfortunately we are not able to create aNifi Registry Bucket because the wrench icon the upper right side (as shown bellow) is not showing on.

Dose this means we are missing some configuration or authorisation properties?

You are correct that this typically means you are missing some authorization for the currently authenticated user.   To help you with this issue, I would need to know a lot more about your NiFi-Registry setup configuration.

1. nifi-registry.properties file would tell me which method of user authentication you have setup, any identity.mappings you have setup, and which authorizer you are using.
2. identity.providers.xml file tells me how the login provider if used specified in the above nifi-registry.properties file is configured.
3. authorizers.xml file tells you how the configured authorizer specified in the above nifi-registry.properties file is configured and what user-group-providers are being used.
4. Depending on configurations used in authorizers.xml, you may have a users.xml and authorizations.xml file generated as well or you may be using an external authorizer like Ranger.
5. I would need to know your user string (case sensitive) that is displayed in the upper right corner of the NiFi-Registry UI after you login/authenticate into nifi-registry, so that it can be checked against the configured policies to see what your user is missing.

The policies used by NiFi-Registry are covered in the admin guide here:
https://nifi.apache.org/docs/nifi-registry-docs/html/administration-guide.html#access-policies

You will want to look at the "Special Privilege Policies" which include what would be needed by an admin user to create new buckets.

Providing the above details in a Cloudera Support ticket provided you have a support subscription with Cloudera would allow support to quickly and easily assist you with this issue.
