Block (or strip out) FlowFile Content

I need to perform an HTTP Post from NiFi, but I don't want/need the request to carry all of the FlowFile's content.

Is there some way to pass attributes of a FlowFile but not the full content?


Hi @Dan Nichols,

Using the InvokeHttp processor, there is a parameter ('Send Message Body') specifying if the content of the flow file should be sent as the body of the HTTP request.

Another option, depending of your needs, could be to use ReplaceText to remove the content of the flow file.

Hope this helps.
