What is the best way to organize many NiFi Processors in a single flow

Rising Star

If the case where NiFi is reading from 30 database tables in a single flow what is the best way to visually identify which processor is connecting to each database and table?

Processor's can be renamed on the first tab of the processor's configuration window. You could name each processor with the table name to easily see it when looking at the flow.

Great feature @bbende . This is much easier to visualize now.

Hi @Kirk Haslbeck,

You can use "Process Groups" to groupe several processors in one unit. You can then click to zoom in and out.

You can also use labels to visually differentiate between each part with background colors
