-------------------------------------

             Summary: Modify TailFile processor to allow Expression Language for initial file
propery
                 Key: MINIFI-102
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MINIFI-102
             Project: Apache NiFi MiNiFi
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Core Framework
    Affects Versions: 0.0.1
            Reporter: Andrew Psaltis


There are times between designign a MiNiFi flow that the initial file to be Tailed is not
know at design time. Often the design and deploy may be seperates by days and thus non-deterministic.
Therefore, the initial file name is not known ahead of time. This could be fixed by modifying
the config.yml on the agent box when it is deployed, however, that seems to be a more brittle
solution and puts the burden on the person doing the agent deploy. This model may also not
work when the MiNiFi management facilities are realized.
