S2S communication from Minifi -> Nifi with Knox involved

S2S communication from Minifi -> Nifi with Knox involved

New Contributor

We are looking to have a hadoop cluster in our organization. We will have many Minifi instances sending data to the cluster, which will use Knox as the gateway. However, Minifi seems to only be able to use SSL certificates to authenticate itself and Knox wants more than just certificates for authentication. Is there any documentation out there on configuring site-to-site communication between Minifi and Nifi when Knox is involved? I've successfully gotten SSL enabled on the Nifi instances and I can send data from Minifi straight to Nifi without Knox. I can also view the Nifi UI through Knox (using Knox's demo LDAP), but I can't figure out how to send data from Minifi to Nifi through Knox. I'm a little bit stuck.


Any assistance would be appreciated!
