For the simplest example, with GetFlowFIle (GFF) -> PutFlowFile (PFF), where GFF gets files and PFF saves those files into a different directory, then following provenance events will be generated:
- GFF RECEIVE file1
- PFF SEND file2
From above provenance events, following entities and lineages should be created in Atlas, labels in brackets are Atlas type names:
Entities shown in above graph are created. However, the 'nifi_flow_path' entity do not have inputs/outputs referencing 'fs_path', so lineage can not be seen in Atlas UI.
