[NIFI] Hyperlink to process group (for sharing)

Can you create hyperlinks to a process group? I would like to create a hyperlink that will directly open the NIFI UI with the contents of the process group.

Re: [NIFI] Hyperlink to process group (for sharing)

Hello @Ward Bekker

Although it's very useful, I couldn't find such URL or URL parameter that directly open a ProcessGroup in NiFi canvas by searching through NiFi code.

However, a bookmarklet may be useful to share. After opening NiFi UI from a browser, specify following javascript at browser address bar, then it opens a ProcessGroup:

javascript:nf.CanvasUtils.enterGroup('02769185-015a-1000-2e6d-29eab04dde5d')

The uuid argument for enterGroup function is a ProcessGroup uuid.

Hello @Ward Bekker

I just wanted to mention there is an Apache JIRA relating to this very topic – NIFI-3035 URL to display a particular process group in UI
