Who is This Guide For?
This guide is written for users who have never used, have had limited exposure to, or only accomplished specific tasks within NiFi. This guide is not intended to be an exhaustive instruction manual or a reference guide. The How To documentation provides a great deal of information and is intended to be a much more exhaustive resource and is very useful as a reference guide, as well. This guide, in comparison, is intended to provide users with just the information needed in order to understand how to work with NiFi in order to quickly and easily build powerful and agile dataflows.
Because some of the information in this guide is applicable only for first-time users while other information may be applicable for those who have used NiFi a bit, this guide is broken up into several different sections, some of which may not be useful for some readers. Feel free to jump to the sections that are most appropriate for you.
This guide does expect that the user has a basic understanding of what NiFi is and does not delve into this level of detail. This level of information can be found in the Overview documentation.
