convert-cvs-to-xml.xml

If you are still having problems uploading the template, can you confirm what version of NiFi you are on? I just did a test in NiFi 1.8.0 and the upload was successful.

Hi @Nitin Damle

It would be helpful if you selected "Reply" to each of my comments instead of adding new Answers, which makes the readability of this question more difficult. Understandably, the "Reply" link is very small and hard to see.

Are you modifying the template prior to uploading it into NiFi? That was the issue in the other HCC article you referenced (https://community.hortonworks.com/questions/226390/nifi-18-error-updateattribute-is-not-known-to-thi...). Because the template was malformed, it gave that error.

Hi @Nitin Damle

Here is the XML to CSV template: convert-xml-to-csv.xml

Here is the sample XML file to use: users.xml

If you find these helpful, please "Accept" my original answer from February 14th as this template is the implementation of what I suggested to do.

One thing, I wanted to note. For the XMLReader controller service (https://nifi.apache.org/docs/nifi-docs/components/org.apache.nifi/nifi-record-serialization-services...), I needed to set the Expect Records as Array property to "true".
