Case1:-
If your file is in local filesystem then you can use get file processor

Input Directory

/demo/data

File Filter

cdrs.txt

Keep Source File

false //if set to false delete the file after fetch,if true don't delete the file

Case2:-
If your file is in Hadoop File system(HDFS) then you need to use GetHDFS processor to pull the file from Hdfs to NiFi.

If you are using kerberos then you need to specify principal and keytab values in the properties.

Hadoop Configuration Resources

<path to core-site.xml,hdfs-site.xml> //we need to provide the file path for core-site.xml,hdfs-site.xml here

Directory

/demo/data

Keep Source File

false //if set to false delete the file after fetch,if true don't delete the file

File Filter Regex

cdrs.txt
