[Apahe Nifi] Module UnpackContent

New Contributor

Hello,

 

I am trying Apache Nifi for testing purpose. I create a flow that need to unzip a file that contains an .xml file. I chain those processors: ListFIle => IdentifyMimeType => UnpackContent.

 

All files I have test are failled. And I have a java error on my logs:

Welcome to NiFi!

The ListFile [1] processor is only designed to create a 0 byte NiFi FlowFile (no content is fetched). This created NiFi FlowFile simply has a a bunch of Attributes created on the FlowFile that can be used later to actually retrieve the content via the FetchFile [2] processor.

 

The combination of these two processors allow NiFi to spread the heavy work across multiple nodes in a cluster when the source of the data may not be cluster friendly (for example a remote disk mounted to all nodes in a NiFi cluster).  The ListFile processor would be configured to execute on "Primary Node" only and its success relationship would be routed via a connection to the FetchFile.  That connection would be configured to load balance the 0 byte FlowFiles produced by ListFile.  Then the FetchSFTP processors executing on all nodes would get the now distributed files and fetch the content.  There are other similar list/fetch combinations.

Since you have left the FetchFile processor out of yoru dataflow, you are not passing any content to the UnpackContent processor thus resulting in the exception you are seeing.  In that exception you will see details on the FlowFile trying to be unpacked:

StandardFlowFileRecord[uuid=cfe7807c-d6ad-4127-b779-75b2f57c0ba6,claim=,offset=0,name=data.zip,size=0]

You'll notice the "size=0" which menas it is 0 bytes which is expected since you have not fetched the content for this file yet.

Hi Leopol,

Hope I understand your needs.

You may try using compressContent processor instead of UnpackContent, select uncompress mode and choose the compression format.
