Install and configure the Apache NiFi Registry which manages shared resources for Apache NiFi.


What nifi_registry affects

This module will download the Apache NiFi Registry tarball to /var/tmp/.

The tarball will be unpacked to /opt/nifi-registry by default.

Setup Requirements

NiFi Registry requires Java Runtime Environment. Nifi Registry 0.5.0 runs on Java 8, newer than 1.8.0_45.

When installing on local infrastructure, consider download the distribution tarballs, validate them with the Apache distribution keys, and store it on a local repository. Adjust the configuration variables to point to your local repository. The NiFi Registry download page also documents how to verify the integrity and authenticity of the downloaded files.

Beginning with nifi_registry

Add dependency modules to your puppet environment:

  • camptocamp/systemd
  • puppet/archive
  • puppetlabs/java (optional, you can install java yourself)
  • puppetlabs/stdlib


To download and install NiFi Registry, include the module. This will download nifi registry, unpack it under /opt/nifi-registry/nifi-registry-<version>, and start the service with default configuration and storage locations.

include nifi_registry

To host the file locally, add a nifi_registry::download_url variable for the module.

nifi_registry::download_url: ""

Please keep nifi_registry::download_url, nifi_registry::download_checksum and nifi_registry::version in sync. The URL, checksum and version should match. Otherwise, Puppet will become confused.


This module is under development, and therefore somewhat light on functionality.

Configuration is not managed yet. This can be managed outside the module with file resources.


In the Development section, tell other users the ground rules for contributing to your project and how they should submit their work.
