For non-SSL enabled NiFi below should work:

curl --tlsv1.2 -i -H
'Content-Type: application/json' -XPUT -d
'{"id":"cdb54c9a-0158-1000-5566-c45ca9692f85","state":"RUNNING"}'
localhost:8080/nifi-api/flow/process-groups/cdb54c9a-0158-1000-5566-c45ca9692f85

Start Process Group for SSL enabled NiFi :

  • Generate access token:
[root@nifi-ambari-01
~]# curl --tlsv1.2  https://000.00.00.000:9091/nifi-api/access/token
--data 'username=awadhwani&password=password' -k

If Nifi is on a cluster then REST API call can be sent to all nodes or just primary node?

As per the Nifi API documentation:

GET /process-groups/{groupId}/variable-registry/update-requests/{updateId} Gets a process group's variable registry
DELETE /process-groups/{groupId}/variable-registry/update-requests/{updateId} Deletes an update request for a process group's variable registry. If the request is not yet complete, it will automatically be cancelled.
GET /process-groups/{id} Gets a process group
PUT /process-groups/{id} Updates a process group
But, the call is /nifi-api/flow/process-groups. Any idea if this is a documentation issue ?

Hi All,

 

We are using nifi 1.8 and it was on http, we enabled https now on 3 node cluster.

We have processers which we had to start and stop based on feeds from upstream systems and other checks. We used api as suggested in post. Below is code

 

tkn=$(curl --tlsv1.2 https://10.10.10.10:8443/nifi-api/access/token --data 'username=USERID&password=PASSWORD' -k)

GETFILE='https://'$HOSTNAME':'$PORT'/nifi-api/processors/'$GET_ID''

curl --tlsv1.2 -ik -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -H 'Authorization: Bearer '$tkn'' -X PUT -d '{"id":"'$GET_ID'","state":"RUNNING"}}' $GETFILE

 

When i execute i get below error, but when i try from console for this user i can start and stop the processer 'ddd43f1f-015f-1000-10d9-dfb3420f4d4c'

 

tkn=$(curl --tlsv1.2 https://10.10.10.10:8443/nifi-api/access/token --data 'username=USERID&password=PASSWORD' -k)

+ curl --tlsv1.2 https://10.10.10.10:8443/nifi-api/access/token --data 'username=USERID&password=PASSWORD' -k
