    Description

      The user guide specifies that the following configuration

      a1.sources.avroSrc.interceptors.search-replace.replaceString =

      will replace the search pattern with an empty string, but the following error is observed and there is no way to specify an empty replace string

      java.lang.NullPointerException: Must supply a replacement string replaceString (empty is ok)
      at com.google.common.base.Preconditions.checkNotNull(Preconditions.java:204)
      at org.apache.flume.interceptor.SearchAndReplaceInterceptor$Builder.configure(SearchAndReplaceInterceptor.java:108)
      at org.apache.flume.channel.ChannelProcessor.configureInterceptors(ChannelProcessor.java:110)

      We need to modify the SearchAndReplaceInterceptor to accept null values for replacement string and use empty string in that case
