Subject Re: ParseCEF processor fails when Msg field exceed 1023 characters
Date Thu, 03 Jan 2019 21:58:25 GMT
You may be able to do some light detection by using a regex in RouteOnContent (not RouteText,
which evaluates lines individually) to capture the group and perform a length check before
trying to parse the CEF format. However, if the spec states that the field cannot contain
more than 1023 characters, there isn’t anything NiFi can do to change that though.

ParseCEF processor fails for message/events that holds a string in the Msg field that has
more than 1023 character. According to the CEF standard the Msg field in an event shall not
exceed 1023 character. The PARSECEF fails with:
