How to make an authenticated REST microservice calls using NiFi Processors

Can NiFi handle authenticated calls to REST microservices? For example before calling a REST service, the client needs to call an authentication service to obtain a token or session id. The session token is then passed into a REST call to post the data.

Is there any mechanism for maintaining the token and renewing it periodically?

If the token can be retrieved from an external resource via static credentials, you can use a separate InvokeHTTP processor to perform the authentication and load the token into flowfile content, which is then fed to the follow-on InvokeHTTP processor to perform the actual request.

@Pierre Villard has a good example of using OAuth 1.0 to generate credential material and then use that in a follow-on request.
