nifi putfile dot rename?

Explorer

In apache nifi how can I make the putfile processor use . rename as it writes a file out to the filesystem? or does it do this by default?

Where it would write the file as a .filename and then rename it to the actual filename?

Yes to part 2 of your question.

That is how NiFi writes out a file. First, .filename as it is being written and then renames to filename after the write is complete.
