Configure the processor for your data target

You can set up a data flow to move data into many locations. This example assumes that you are moving data into Apache Hive using PutHive3Streaming. If you are moving data into another location, review Getting Started with Apache NiFi for information about how to build a data flow, and about other data ingest processor options.

  1. Launch the Configure Processor window, by right-clicking the processor and selecting Configure.
  2. Click the Properties tab.
  3. Configure PutHive3Streaming with the required values.
