UUIDs are created when a template is add to the canvas. This allows users to instantiate the same template multiple times within a single NiFi. It also insures not conflict of UUID with other existing components already instantiated. There is no way for users to set the UUIDs of any component manually.

The only way to maintain UUIDs between NiFi instances is to move the entire flow.xml.gz file from one NIFi to the next rather then using templates.
