    @alopresto thanks for addressing this, happy to review.  It does look like 
Travis is failing on a ratcheck related error in nifi-toolkit-encrypt-config

> 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
>            Priority: Major
> 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).
