All I am doing is to create a flowfile and drop it; to archive after I am done I need to restart nifi, otherwise the flowfile stays in content_repository/1 where it is created
There are no other flowfiles hanging around: that I can tell from the nifi canvas and the fact that I installed nifi this morning on my machine just for this test and did not do anything more than creating a few flowfiles and check that they all been DROPPED; besides had they not been they would not have been archived on nifi restarting anyway.
I can see that the checkpointing works fine: the flowfile_repository/checkpoint is updated within two mins of content claim creation or update in content_repository, but this does not trigger an immediate archiving but only an archiving upon restarting
I saw other people on this board grappling with this problem, but I have not found any solution
Any suggestion? Am I missing something in the doc and this is the default behavior?
