I am just getting started using NiFi (very cool!), and am experimenting with a simple dataflow that would acquire data from a FTP server. The GetFTP processor works fine, but I am acquiring from a third party FTP server, and I cannot download the original file. Because I cannot delete, I am downloading the same files over and over. It looks like ListSFTP is similar to GetFTP but it would also track which files have already been downloaded. Unfortunately, the server I am downloading from does not support SFTP. Are there any plans to offer a processor that could list/fetch from FTP? If not, is there a way, other than a custom processor, to do this with the existing processors?
Thank you very much for your time!
Thank you for the quick response, Oleg. As you suggested, I will submit a JIRA.
