host names in a clustered NiFi

Knapp, Michael
Hi,

I’m trying to run NiFi in a clustered configuration within docker containers on kubernetes.  While I have NiFi starting in standalone mode, I get exceptions when launching it in clustered mode.  I’m having a lot of trouble figuring out what the host names really should be.

I looked through the system properties<http://nifi.apache.org/docs/nifi-docs/html/administration-guide.html#system_properties> (web and cluster properties) and also the Admin Guide (Cluster setup section).  The description of these host properties is quite vague:

                nifi.cluster.node.address – The fully qualified address of the node.  It is blank by default.
                Nifi.web.http.host – The HTTP host.  It is blank by default.
                Nifi.web.https.host – The HTTPS host. It is blank by default.

The descriptions above are quite vague and don’t explain to me how NiFi will behave based on these values.  In fact, I keep needing to go through a lot of trial and error to make this work.  What happens if they are blank?  What happens if I insert the IP address?

Just asking for the host name is ambiguous, I have a docker internal host name, an EC2 host name, a kubernetes service name, load balancer host names, and a route53 host name.  The correct value really depends on how these are used in the code.  I could easily see these needing to be the kubernetes service name or the internal host name, or the route53 host name.  What should I be using here?  Should all nodes in the cluster have the same value for this?

Here is the stack trace I am seeing at runtime:
