NiFi - Bulletins

avatar

Is there a way to access NiFi Bulletins using NiFi Rest API ? Is there any documentation available on this ? My goal is to capture NiFi Bulletins using Rest API so I can take some kind of notification action rather than just displaying it in UI.

Hi @mgilman - I don't see these endpoints in the REST API documentation.

I have been trying to capture bulletin messages. Can you please share the flow and configuration for this if you have achieved using REST-API?

Sure, the UI polls from the bulletin-board here [1]. I discussed those endpoints a little bit below.

This link shares the code of it, I wanted to know how to configure nifi processors (flow) and where/how to use the endpoints in those processors to capture the bulletin.

The documentation on the website will be for the most recently released version of Apache NiFi (specifically 1.0.0). When this question was asked Apache NiFi was still on the 0.x baseline.

In 1.x bulletins are available through the bulletin-board endpoint

/nifi-api/flow/bulletin-board

or bundled with each component. For instance,

/nifi-api/flow/process-groups/{id}

for all components under some process group or

/nifi-api/processors/{id}

for a specific processor.

Can you please share the link for 0.7? In general, where can we see documentation for previous releases?

Thanks

The website only contains the documentation for the current release. However, you can always access the documentation within the application. You should be able to click the help link in the upper right hand corner. From there, scroll down to the bottom on the left and access the Rest API docs.
