I have a feed coming in with time spent value set in seconds. Example 900 or 3600

Is there way in nifi to convert attribute to 00:15 and 01:00 (HH:mm format)?

@GSB 

If you wanted it always to be two digits, you would need to apply the same if/else NiFi Expression Language (NEL) logic the minute calculations in the working solution provided by @cotopaul 

${value:divide(3600):lt(10):ifElse(${value:divide(3600):prepend(0)},${value:divide(3600)})}:${value:divide(60):mod(60):lt(10):ifElse(${value:divide(3600):mod(60):prepend(0)},${value:divide(3600):mod(60)})}


A simpler approach would be to use the toDate and Format NEL functions:

${value:toDate('sssss'):format('HH:mm')}

I allow 5 's' assuming that max value would be 86,500 seconds (24 hours in a day) and does not matter if value is smaller.   This format also allows you to quickly and easily adjust format for example, maybe you don't want to truncate the remaining seconds and use ":format('HH:mm:ss')" instead.
