Managing Elasticsearch connectors

How to manage your descriptors and connectors, so as to optimize your search indexing for Elasticsearch.

About this task

A descriptor is a template that is used to create a connector in NiFi. The Ingest API offers the following methods of managing connectors. In the context of this documentation, ‘connector’ refers to a descriptor that has been created, whereas a descriptor refers to a connector template. This is akin to the concepts of ‘Class’ and ‘Object’ in Java where a Connector is an ‘Object and a Descriptor is a ‘Class’.
