NiFi: How do I see the flowfile attributes names/values?

Rising Star

How do I view the flowfile attributes names/values once it processor completes processing and move it to queue. Wanted to be able to see the flow file attribute/name values available, such that they can be used in subsequent processor expressions.

You can view the content of a flowfile as well as its attributes.

For example, RC on a queue and press "List Queue"

Afterwards, you can view the details (i-icon, first column) of the individual flow files.

Is there a way that one can inspect the FlowFile once it has already passed through the queues? I'm trying your recommended method of inspecting the attributes of a FlowFile but the queue finished too quick and thus end up with "The queue has no FlowFiles" instead of the output that you have displayed.
