Viewing FlowFile Lineage
It is often useful to see a graphical representation of the lineage or path a FlowFile took within the dataflow. To see a FlowFile's lineage, click on the "Show Lineage" icon ( ) in the far-right column of the Data Provenance table. This opens a graph displaying the FlowFile ( ) and the various processing events that have occurred. The selected event will be highlighted in red. It is possible to right-click or double-click on any event to see that event's details. To see how the lineage evolved over time, click the slider at the bottom-left of the window and move it to the left to see the state of the lineage at earlier stages in the dataflow.
