@Mohammed El Moumni

Currently there is no way to delete a counter, only reset. There was no delete option because if you deleted the counter, it would be recreated immediately if the processor was still running. The use case of a deleting a processor and wanting to remove the counter associated with it was not considered. Moving forward, the use case will be a clear/delete icon. If the counter is deleted and the processor still exists and is running, the counter will be recreated immediately. If the processor has been removed then the counter will be deleted.

@Mohammed El Moumni

I owe you an apology. While trying to get a screenshot of the trash can, I discovered that in fact there is no way currently to delete the counter. I have opened a Apache Jira for this issue and here is the link: NIFI-3751

I've updated the post above with correct information.
