> While ideally a user/admin would never have to examine the 
> {{$NIFI_HOME/conf/users.xml}} or {{$NIFI_HOME/conf/authorizations.xml}} 
> files, in my development and debugging, I have had to on more than one 
> occasion. It would be helpful to list the actual policy resource descriptor 
> (e.g. {{/provenance}}, {{/flow}}, {{/tenants}}) in the table in the [Admin 
> Guide|https://nifi.apache.org/docs/nifi-docs/html/administration-guide.html#global-access-policies]
>  listing these policies. When the provenance policy was missing for both of 
> my defined users, I could not add it through the UI, so I had to manually 
> edit the {{authorizations.xml}} file, but I did not know the resource 
> descriptor a priori, so I had to search the code base for it. 
> I envision simply adding an additional column to the table and adding the 
> descriptor, including a placeholder if necessary (e.g. 
> {{/data/process-groups/}}_root-process-group-id_).
