Counts various metrics on incoming text. The requested results will be recorded as attributes. The resulting flowfile will not have its content modified.
count, text, line, word, character
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.
|Name||Default Value||Allowable Values||Description|
|Count Lines||true||If enabled, will count the number of lines present in the incoming text.|
|Count Non-Empty Lines||false||If enabled, will count the number of lines that contain a non-whitespace character present in the incoming text.|
|Count Words||false||If enabled, will count the number of words (alphanumeric character groups bounded by whitespace) present in the incoming text. Common logical delimiters [_-.] do not bound a word unless 'Split Words on Symbols' is true.|
|Count Characters||false||If enabled, will count the number of characters (including whitespace and symbols, but not including newlines and carriage returns) present in the incoming text.|
|Split Words on Symbols||false||If enabled, the word count will identify strings separated by common logical delimiters [ _ - . ] as independent words (ex. split-words-on-symbols = 4 words).|
|Character Encoding||UTF-8||Specifies a character encoding to use.|
|success||The flowfile contains the original content with one or more attributes added containing the respective counts|
|failure||If the flowfile text cannot be counted for some reason, the original file will be routed to this destination and nothing will be routed elsewhere|
|text.line.count||The number of lines of text present in the FlowFile content|
|text.line.nonempty.count||The number of lines of text (with at least one non-whitespace character) present in the original FlowFile|
|text.word.count||The number of words present in the original FlowFile|
|text.character.count||The number of characters (given the specified character encoding) present in the original FlowFile|
