Subject Re: FlattenJson
Date Tue, 20 Mar 2018 13:47:34 GMT
What would be the main use case for wanting all the flattened values
in attributes?

If the reason was to keep the original content, we could probably just
added an original relationship.

Also, I think FlattenJson supports flattening a flow file where the
root is an array of JSON documents (although I'm not totally sure), so
you'd have to consider what to do in that case.
