Chen Qin reassigned FLINK-8437:
-------------------------------

    Assignee: Chen Qin

> SideOutput() API is ambiguous
> -----------------------------
>
>                 Key: FLINK-8437
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-8437
>             Project: Flink
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Streaming
>    Affects Versions: 1.5.0
>            Reporter: Chesnay Schepler
>            Assignee: Chen Qin
>            Priority: Minor
>
> The current API for retrieving Side Outputs is a bit ambiguous. Consider the program
below:
> {code:java}
> sideOutput = stream
>     .process(...)
>     .filter(...)
>     .getSideOutput(tag)
> {code}
> This may be the sideOutput of the process function that is passed through the API for
convenience, or the sideOutput of the filter function (which would always be empty).
> Given that only process functions can have sideOutputs we may want to change the return
type so that getSideOutput can only be called after a process function.
