In the list below, the names of required properties appear in bold. Any other properties (not in bold) are considered optional. The table also indicates any default values, whether a property supports the NiFi Expression Language, and whether a property is considered "sensitive", meaning that its value will be encrypted. Before entering a value in a sensitive property, ensure that the file has an entry for the property nifi.sensitive.props.key.

Acknowledgement Mode2
  • AUTO_ACKNOWLEDGE (1) Automatically acknowledges a client's receipt of a message, regardless if NiFi session has been commited. Can result in data loss in the event where NiFi abruptly stopped before session was commited.
  • CLIENT_ACKNOWLEDGE (2) (DEFAULT) Manually acknowledges a client's receipt of a message after NiFi Session was commited, thus ensuring no data loss
  • DUPS_OK_ACKNOWLEDGE (3) This acknowledgment mode instructs the session to lazily acknowledge the delivery of messages. May result in both data duplication and data loss while achieving the best throughput.
The JMS Acknowledgement Mode. Using Auto Acknowledge can cause messages to be lost on restart of NiFi but may provide better performance than Client Acknowledge.
