Subject: Nifi deployment versioning and automation

Hello, while it is certainly possible to automate the workflow deployment in nifi using the
exposed API it is a non-trivial and lengthy process.

  *   Versioning the workflows (process groups)
  *   deployment itself
     *   managing staging/production promotion
     *   gracefully stopping (and flushing the processors (e.g have one that waits for 16MB
chunks before writing it to google storage, how to tell it "write-everything-you-have-now-and-shut-down)
     *   starting the new flow and checking for errors
     *   removing the old, stopped, flow
     *   optional - doing a failover back to the old workflow, if errors spotted

What is the most mature nifi deployment tool on the market? So far i have just seen very basic
scripted solution that are not production and definitely not something i want to use in production
and stick my neck up for.
