Properties:

In the list below, the names of required properties appear in bold. Any other properties (not in bold) are considered optional. The table also indicates any default values, whether a property supports the NiFi Expression Language, and whether a property is considered "sensitive", meaning that its value will be encrypted. Before entering a value in a sensitive property, ensure that the nifi.properties file has an entry for the property nifi.sensitive.props.key.

NameDefault ValueAllowable ValuesDescription
Hadoop Configuration ResourcesA file or comma separated list of files which contains the Hadoop file system configuration. Without this, Hadoop will search the classpath for a 'core-site.xml' and 'hdfs-site.xml' file or will revert to a default configuration. To use swebhdfs, see 'Additional Details' section of PutHDFS's documentation.

This property expects a comma-separated list of file resources.

Supports Expression Language: true (will be evaluated using variable registry only)
Kerberos Credentials ServiceController Service API:
KerberosCredentialsService
Implementation: KeytabCredentialsService
Specifies the Kerberos Credentials Controller Service that should be used for authenticating with Kerberos
Kerberos PrincipalKerberos principal to authenticate as. Requires nifi.kerberos.krb5.file to be set in your nifi.properties
Supports Expression Language: true (will be evaluated using variable registry only)
Kerberos KeytabKerberos keytab associated with the principal. Requires nifi.kerberos.krb5.file to be set in your nifi.properties

This property requires exactly one file to be provided..

Supports Expression Language: true (will be evaluated using variable registry only)
Kerberos PasswordKerberos password associated with the principal.
Sensitive Property: true
Kerberos Relogin Period4 hoursPeriod of time which should pass before attempting a kerberos relogin. This property has been deprecated, and has no effect on processing. Relogins now occur automatically.
Supports Expression Language: true (will be evaluated using variable registry only)
Additional Classpath ResourcesA comma-separated list of paths to files and/or directories that will be added to the classpath and used for loading native libraries. When specifying a directory, all files with in the directory will be added to the classpath, but further sub-directories will not be included.

This property expects a comma-separated list of resources. Each of the resources may be of any of the following types: directory, file.
Compression type
  • NONE
  • RECORD
  • BLOCK
Type of compression to use when creating Sequence File
Compression codecNONE
  • NONE No compression
  • DEFAULT Default ZLIB compression
  • BZIP BZIP compression
  • GZIP GZIP compression
  • LZ4 LZ4 compression
  • LZO LZO compression - it assumes LD_LIBRARY_PATH has been set and jar is available
  • SNAPPY Snappy compression
  • AUTOMATIC Will attempt to automatically detect the compression codec.
