Subject: Re: REST provenance api search options


Here's an example command for initiating a provenance search:

curl 'http://localhost:8080/nifi-api/provenance' -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -H 'Accept:
application/json, text/javascript, */*; q=0.01' --data-binary '{"provenance":{"request":{"maxResults":1000,"startDate":"11/15/2016
00:00:00 EST","endDate":"11/15/2016 23:59:59 EST","searchTerms":{"FlowFileUUID":"<flowfile-uuid>","Filename":"<name
of flowfile>","ProcessorID":"<component-uuid>"}}}}' --compressed

The available searchable fields are defined in your file under the following


Because the searches can be long running they are performed asynchronously. These means that
the curl command above creates the search request but does not wait for it to complete. Instead,
you'll need to get the uuid to the search request to continue to GET it until the search completes.
Once completed, you should DELETE the search request. Open up the Dev Tools in your browser
to seen this sequence of requests in action.

Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks.

My SW context : nifi 1.0.0/ubuntu

 I am trying to use the provenance search options . I have the Id of my processor ie (ProcessorID
) but it’s not very clear for me how to fill the searchableFields.

Is something  as the following to be right  ? and in this case where do i put the ProcessorID?
in the field or  in the Id ? and what for label?


curl -i -X PUT -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d '{"searchableFields":[{"id":"ProcessorID","field":"processorId","label":"Component

' http://localhost:8080/nifi-api/provenance/search-options’


​ please can you clarify ? with an example ?

Best regards
