Subject [jira] [Commented] (NIFI-531) Add UpdateContent processor
Date Wed, 22 Apr 2015 00:41:58 GMT


Joseph Gresock commented on NIFI-531:

Ah neat, I wasn't aware of this.  So the .* optimization will replace it with an EL expression
evaluation even if it's a huge file incoming?  That satisfies this use case.

> A simple and powerful processor would be one that can replace the content of a flow file
with an evaluated EL expression.  This could be coupled with processors that take specific
document formats as input (e.g., PutSolr from NIFI-461), which could easily be constructed
using one or more flow file attributes.
> I believe the only way built into Nifi that lets you achieve this is to specify a header
file in MergeContent, whose contents is an EL expression.  This would simplify the process.
> Pull request forthcoming this week.
