Subject Re: ExecuteScript and flowfiles

Either option is plausible, but the first is probably preferable. I would recommend the Python
script should add an attribute to each flowfile with some flag or indicator (i.e. which virtual
relationship it would follow) and have a single connection out of the ExecuteScript processor
for success connected to a RouteOnAttribute processor. This processor is designed to have
multiple outgoing connections and will route the incoming flowfiles based on attributes, as
the name would indicate.

Doing this the second way would require additional coding in the Python script to reference
new relationships, and this can be tricky.

Matt Burgess has some good examples of using Python scripts in the ExecuteScript processor
on his blog [1].
