ContentNotFoundException thrown if a FlowFile's content claim is read, then written to, then read again, within the same ProcessSession



    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Resolved
    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: None
    • Fix Version/s: 1.9.0
    • Component/s: Core Framework
    • Labels:


      The following Processor can be used to replicate the issue.

      If a processor reads content, then attempts to write to the content, then read what was just written, a ContentNotFoundException will be thrown.
