Install and configure the Apache NiFi Toolkit, a CLI for the Apache NiFi dataflow automation software.


What nifi_toolkit affects

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

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

Setup Requirements

NiFi requires Java Runtime Environment. Nifi 1.10.1 runs on Java 8 or Java 11.

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 download page also documents how to verify the integrity and authenticity of the downloaded files.

Beginning with nifi_toolkit

Add dependency modules to your puppet environment:

  • puppet/archive
  • puppetlabs/stdlib
  • camptocamp/systemd


To download and install NiFi Toolkit, include the module. This will download nifi toolkit and unpack it under /opt/nifi-toolkit/nifi-toolkit-<version>.

include nifi_toolkit

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

nifi_toolkit::download_url: "http://repo.local/nifi/1.10.0/nifi-toolkit-1.10.0-bin.tar.gz"

Please keep nifi_toolkit::download_url, nifi_toolkit::download_checksum and nifi_toolkit::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.
