template general understanding

I am following the User guide about creating templates. Question, can I select e.g. six out of the 10 processors in a group to create be part of template ? It seems to be all (if nothing selected).

That is expected behaviour from NiFi:

if you `Right Click` on specific/some processors and choose Create Template will create a template for those processors only.

if you `Right Click` on canvas where no processor has been selected then NiFi creates template including all processors.

You can also use NiFi Registry instead of Templates to keep versioning and import/export workflows into other environments and keep them in sync with each other.

Using CNTRL and SHIFT buttons will provide the capability to selective pick processors and connectors that are intended to template.
