Dataflow | How to Install and configure NIFI

What is and for what ?

Nifi is a web tool that we can use to perform data ingestion.

It allows us to listen, format and make a first filter of the messages (data) received by several of its embedded processors.

Likewise process and distribute data.

Download Packages and checks

Download the packages from:
