Installing as a Service
Currently, installing NiFi as a service is supported only for Linux and Mac OS X users. To install the application as a service, navigate to the installation directory in a Terminal window and execute the command
bin/nifi.sh install to install the service with the default name
nifi. To specify a custom name for the service, execute the command with an optional second argument that is the name of the service. For example, to install NiFi as a service with the name
dataflow, use the command
bin/nifi.sh install dataflow.
Once installed, the service can be started and stopped using the appropriate commands, such as
sudo service nifi start and
sudo service nifi stop. Additionally, the running status can be checked via
sudo service nifi status.
