Subject [DISCUSS] Run Once scheduling
Date Thu, 12 Jan 2017 15:54:20 GMT
On a project that I am on we have been looking at using NiFi for orchestrations that are invoked
infrequently.  For example, once a month a new data input product becomes available and then
one wants to run it through a set of processing steps that can be nicely implemented using
NiFi processors.  However, using the interval or cron scheduling for this purpose begins to
get cumbersome after a while with the need to start and manually stop these occasional flows.

It would be fairly easy to add an additional scheduling option - “Run Once” for this use
case.  The behavior would be that when a processor is set to run once it automatically stops
after it has successfully processed one input.

What do people think?  We are willing to implement this small enhancement.
