GetFile NullPointerException on Nifi 1.1.1

New Contributor

GetFile processor throws NullPointerException randomly on 1.1.1. Sometime it throws error and sometime it works. Recently we have installed the version 1.1.1. We have another server where nifi version 0.6.1 is running. According to our observation GetFile works fine on version 0.6.1. The stacktarce is given below:

Hi Aveek,

I have resolved this issue. I have migrated from nifi 0.6.1 to 1.1.1 but was using the old nar packer (nifi-standard-services-api-nar) in the project's pom. That's why I was having weird issue. Moving to the version 1.1.1 of nifi-standard-services-api-nar fixed the issue. I hope it helps.

Thanks.

Hi, Were you able to resolve this issue? I am getting a similar error in the putEmail processor when setting the property "Attach File" to "True".

Regards,
