Subject Re: The difference between PostHTTP and GetHTTP wrt headers
Date Fri, 16 Mar 2018 02:30:33 GMT
I’m actually looking at doing a web service processor , that would support
setting custom headers, and I want it to be “standard”.
I’ll look at the InvokeHTTP.

Both of these are legacy processors introduced early on in NiFi’s
development and intended for moving data between NiFi instances. I would
recommend you use InvokeHTTP, which is a more modern and full-featured
processor and can perform both GET and POST requests.

Can someone explain or confirm why GetHTTP uses Dynamic Properties for
setting custom headers in http requests but PostHTTP uses a Property with a
Regex to pull flow file attributes?

Is it due to the forbidden input?
