Nifi: Auditing the data using provenance data

Nifi: Auditing the data using provenance data

New Contributor

Hi Iam new to nifi and I have followed the tutorial here to understand the provenance repository content and moving it out for auditing. But I have a couple of questions here.

1) The main use of provenance data is to make understand what exactly happened to a piece of data. But here the data is in flow file. How are we supposed to understand what happened to a particular data using flow file?

2) Is the best practice is to always send data provenance data from one nifi to another? Why not use the SiteToSiteProvenanceReportingTask to send to a port in the same nifi instance and extract it out of there?

3) What could be the best tools that can be used for sending these data for auditing?
