Nifi Flow/template missing after restart

New Contributor

After restart of HDP 2.5 sandbox all nifi template/flows missing. Is there a way to restore or find xmls from server



The templates are part of the flow.xml.gz file. So, find that file and you will have your templates also.

I killed my Nifi process via stop.nifi.bat file , hence all my saved templates are no more visible. how do i retrive those templates?


flow.xml.gz has only fewer templates.


The easiest way to get the templates would be to restart NiFi and then download the saved templates from the NiFi flow.

Otherwise, you will have to manually extract the templates from the flow.xml.gz file, which is prone to errors.
