No progress in nifi flow

Explorer

My nifi flow is not progressing nor showing any error:

Flow is for :fetch a test.json fiel from s3 and populate its content in a table in postgresql db.

lists3object-> fetchs3object->JoltTrasformationJSON -> ........ ->PutSQL.

The lists3object alone lists key as my test.json in "view status"


I'm not able to paste screenshots here.

Though all processors got started, none of them are doing any transactions (in & out ) both are 0 bytes and i dont see any errors also.


Last message logged in nifi-app.log is:

The flow was working partially earlier with some error message at Splitjson processor. But now i'm not able to proceed as i don understand where it is stuck. I tried restarting nifi, but no luck.

Can you please suggest where could be the issue.

ListS3 processor is stateful processor once the processor runs it will store the state in the processor and then runs incrementally,if we don't have any new files added to S3 directory then processor won't list any files.

How to Clear state:

Stop the ListS3 processor and Right click on ListS3processor and select state and clear the state that is saved in the processor.

Then start ListS3 processor, now processor will list all the files in S3 directory.

@Jayashree S

Use RouteOnArttribute processor after ListS3Object processor and filter only the required file and pass that to FetchS3Object.

Flow:

Lists3
RouteOnAttribute
FetchS3

(or)

If you want to pull the same file from s3 all the time, then you can use flow as:

GenerateFlowFile //schedule this processor as per your requirements
FetchS3Object //configure full s3 file path

Hi flow seems to progress now after clearing the state.

I actually want to pull a specific file json file from S3 and push its content to a DB.

ListS3Object and FetchS3Object are fetching all file of the latest time stamp and later that.

Though in fetchS3object i specify particular "Object Key" with my specific file name, all the files get fetched in the queue.

Can you please suggest me a way to pull a specific json file.
