An 'authorizer' grants users the privileges to manage users and policies by creating preliminary authorizations at startup.
Authorizers are configured using two properties in the 'nifi.properties' file:
nifi.authorizer.configuration.fileproperty specifies the configuration file where authorizers are defined. By default, the 'authorizers.xml' file located in the root installation conf directory is selected.
nifi.security.user.authorizerproperty indicates which of the configured authorizers in the 'authorizers.xml' file to use.
