NiFi lineage

Atlas collects metadata from NiFi to represent the lineage among data assets in the Lineage tab.

The Atlas lineage graph shows the input and output processes that the current entity participated in, specifically those relationships modeled as “inputToProcesses” and “outputFromProcesses.” Entities are included if they are provided as an input to processes that lead to the current entity or they are output from processes for which the current entity is an input. NiFi processes follow this pattern.
