I ran the same flow myself and examined the AVRO file in HDFS using AVRO Cli.

Even though I didn't specify SNAPPY compression, it was there in the file.

java -jar avro-tools-1.8.0.jar getmeta 23568764174290.avro

log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (org.apache.hadoop.metrics2.lib.MutableMetricsFactory).log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly.

avro.codec snappyavro.schema {"type":"record","name":"people","doc":"Schema generated by Kite","fields":[{"name":"id","type":"long","doc":"Type inferred from '2'"},{"name":"first_name","type":"string","doc":"Type inferred from 'Gregory'"},{"name":"last_name","type":"string","doc":"Type inferred from 'Vasquez'"},{"name":"email","type":"string","doc":"Type inferred from 'gvasquez1@pcworld.com'"},{"name":"gender","type":"string","doc":"Type inferred from 'Male'"},{"name":"ip_address","type":"string","doc":"Type inferred from '32.8.254.252'"},{"name":"company_name","type":"string","doc":"Type inferred from 'Janyx'"},{"name":"domain_name","type":"string","doc":"Type inferred from 'free.fr'"},{"name":"file_name","type":"string","doc":"Type inferred from 'NonMauris.xls'"},{"name":"mac_address","type":"string","doc":"Type inferred from '03-FB-66-0F-20-A3'"},{"name":"user_agent","type":"string","doc":"Type inferred from '\"Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10_6_7;'"},{"name":"lat","type":"string","doc":"Type inferred from ' like Gecko) Version/5.0.4 Safari/533.20.27\"'"},{"name":"long","type":"double","doc":"Type inferred from '26.98829'"}]}

It's hard coded in NIFI.

It always adds SnappyCompression to every AVRO file. No options.

writer.setCodec(CodecFactory.snappyCodec());

Make sure you have a schema set:

Record schema

Record Schema:   ${inferred.avro.schema}

If you can make everything Strings and convert to other types later, you will be happier.
