Configure the processor for your data source

You can set up a data flow to move data to Google Cloud Storage (GCS) from many different locations. This example assumes that you are streaming the data that you are tailing from a local file on the NiFi host. Learn how you can configure the TailFile data source processor for your GCS ingest data flow.

  1. Launch the Configure Processor window, by right clicking the TailFile processor and selecting Configure.
    This gives you a configuration dialog with the following tabs: Settings, Scheduling, Properties, Comments.
  2. Configure the processor according to the behavior you expect in your data flow.

    You can provide the path to the nifi-app.log file that contains the log of the NiFi service running on the host.

  3. When you have finished configuring the options you need, save the changes by clicking Apply.

    Make sure that you set all required properties, as you cannot start the processor until all mandatory properties have been configured.

Configure the processor for merging your records.
