WebSockets is a transmission protocol designed to permit bi-directional message passing over TCP connections using a single port.

See this - ListenUDP

Right now there's no support for WS available, but discussions have been ongoing. Please contribute by letting us know if you're interested more in the inbound flow from websockets endpoints or also looking for having a bi-directional communications from NiFi to a WS endpoint/client.

Personally I'd be more interested in traffic outbound from NiFi to a websocket, but I think either could be just as valuable.
