Apache NiFi evolution from version 1.2 included in HDF 3.0 and version 1.5 included in HDF is significant. I find myself quite often puzzled when required to provide differences between releases and just reading the release notes history at https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/NIFI/Release+Notes and looking at the latest list of NiFi processors is not trivial to determine which new processors were added.

I put together matrix which I hope will help developers to take advantage of new processor to improve old and develop new flows.

In a nutshell, main functionality added is around:

  • AzureEventHub
  • Kafka 0.11 and 1.0 processors
  • Record processors
  • RethinkDB
  • Flatten Json
  • Execute Spark Interactive
  • Execute Groovy Script

My favorite improvements are around record processors, flattening JSON and executing Spark interactively.

The following is a table of the matrix, arranged alphabetically from A-D:
