Subject [jira] [Commented] (NIFI-6275) ListHDFS with Full Path filter mode regex does not work as intended
Date Wed, 02 Oct 2019 08:10:00 GMT


ASF subversion and git services commented on NIFI-6275:

Commit 8d748223ff8f80c7a85fc38013ecf0b221adc2da in nifi's branch refs/heads/master from Jeff
[;h=8d74822 ]

NIFI-6275 ListHDFS now ignores scheme and authority when uses "Full Path" filter mode
Updated description for "Full Path" filter mode to state that it will ignore scheme and authority
Added tests to TestListHDFS for listing an empty and nonexistent dirs
Updated TestListHDFS' mock file system to track state properly when FileStatus instances are
added, and updated listStatus to work properly with the underlying Map that contains FileStatus
Updated ListHDFS' additional details to document "Full Path" filter mode ignoring scheme and
authority, with an example
Updated TestRunners, StandardProcessorTestRunner, MockProcessorInitializationContext to support
passing in a logger.

NIFI-6275 Updated the "Full Path" filter mode to check the full path of a file with and without
its scheme and authority against the filter regex
Added additional documentation for how ListHDFS handles scheme and authority when "Full Path"
filter mode is used
Added test case for "Full Path" filter mode with a regular expression that includes scheme
and authority

This closes #3483.

> When using the *{{Full Path}}* filter mode, the regex is applied to the URI returned
for each file which includes the scheme and authority (hostname, HA namespace, port).  For
the filter to work across multiple HDFS installations (such as a flow used on multiple environments
that is retrieved from NiFi Registry), the regex filter would have to account for the scheme
and authority by matching possible scheme and authority values.
> To make it easier for the user, the *{{Full Path}}* filter mode's filter regex should
only be applied to the path components of the URI, without the scheme and authority.  This
can be done by updating the filter for *{{Full Path}}* mode to use: [Path.getPathWithoutSchemeAndAuthority(Path)|].
 This will bring the regex values in line with the other modes, since those are only applied
to the value of *{{Path.getName()}}*.
> Migration guidance will be needed when this improvement is released.  Existing regex
values for *{{Full Path}}* filter mode that accepted any scheme and authority will still work.

>  Those that specify a scheme and authority will *_not_* work, and will have to be updated
to specify only path components.
