How do we push data onto an API service using Apache Nifi ?

Expert Contributor

Hi All , I have a requirement where I need to drop a file onto an API service. How do we do this in Apache Nifi ? Shall I use the "Post Http" processor. I am a little clueless on the steps here, Can someone give me a high level idea on how to go about this.

@Shu - Have you used this before by any chance, Thanks

First question is to ask how do you accomplish now outside of NiFi?

Once you learn how to interface with this external API to upload a file outside of NiFi, then you can try ti mimic that inside of NiFi. Possibly using PostHTTP or more likely using the InvokeHTTP processor.

It would be impossibel to provide any more detail then this not knowing anything about the API service being used here.
