Subject Re: Nifi registry - extension-repository, extensions, bundles
Date Wed, 31 Jul 2019 13:06:35 GMT
Hi Mike,

The ability to version control extension bundles is a new feature that
the community has been working towards. The dream vision is to pull a
flow flow registry and also be able to retrieve any extension bundles
that go with it.

Right now, the 0.4.0 release of registry has the ability to store
these bundles, but there are unreleased changes on NiFi side in order
to make everything work. So when NiFi 1.10.0 is released then you can
take a NAR built against 1.10.0 nifi-api and version control it in
registry. Initially this will all be done through CLI commands.

Hopefully that helps.
