Subject Re: Managing flows

Look in your Nifi conf directory. The active flow is there as an aptly
named .gz file. Guessing you could just rename that and restart Nifi
which would create a blank new one. Build up another flow, then you
could repeat the same "copy to new file name" and restore some other
one to continue on some previous flow/. I'm pretty new to Nifi, too,
so maybe there is another way. Also, you can create point-in-time
backups of your from from the "Settings" dialog in the DFM. There is a
link that shows up in there to click. It will copy your master flow gz
to your conf/archive directory. You can create multiple snapshots of
your flow to retain change history. I actually gunzip my backups and
commit them to Git for a more formal change history tracking

Hope that helps.
