NiFi Unpack contents with password

NiFi Unpack contents with password

New Contributor


Is there an option to provide password for a file extraction when using UnpackContent in Nifi. I am trying to extract zip files from a pack which requires a password for extraction.

The UnpackContent processor does not support unpacking password protected zip files.


You might try using a executeScript or ExecuteStreamCommand processor to call the unzip command externally. I have not tried this myself. Down side would be password would be in plaintext in your script.


Thank you,
