    Description

      With this feature the NiFi user and developer's life using git as version control as a backend for the registry would be easier (especially in dockerized environments). As a conclusion the git repository would be the single source of truth in order to maintain NiFi flows. This feature contains the following abilities without affecting existing functionality:

      • synchronize remote git repository with local (nifi- registry) git repository in order to support multiple registries (imagine changing a flow in a test environment and update the flow in a productive environment via feature branches in git, etc. ) and third party systems (git changes not done by the registry, repair broken flow file because of changed registry url in flow xml)
      • initial import of git repository into registry's metadata database on startup (see open issue #NIFIREG-227)
      • ability to reset local git repository (including metadata database) to the state of the remote repository¬†
      • get recent status of synchronization process
      • control synchronization via REST- endpoints (reset repository to initial state, pull latest changes from git remote repository
