             Summary: NiFi Toolkit - Allow migration of master key without 
previous password
                 Key: NIFI-4942
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NIFI-4942
             Project: Apache NiFi
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Tools and Build
    Affects Versions: 1.5.0
            Reporter: Yolanda M. Davis
            Assignee: Andy LoPresto

Currently the encryption cli in nifi toolkit requires that, in order to migrate 
from one master key to the next, the previous master key or password should be 
provided. In cases where the provisioning tool doesn't have the previous value 
available this becomes challenging to provide and may be prone to error. In 
speaking with [~alopresto] we can allow toolkit to support a mode of execution 
such that the master key can be updated without requiring the previous 
password. Also documentation around it's usage should be updated to be clear in 
describing the purpose and the type of environment where this command should be 
used (admin only access etc).
