             Summary: Enhance help tooltips with context specific information 
and links to more detailed documentation
                 Key: NIFI-3337
             Project: Apache NiFi
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Core UI
            Reporter: Rob Moran
            Priority: Minor

Currently, when configuring a processor for example, the help tooltips provide 
some explanation around the name of the configuration field name/label. 
Consider options to provide more specific details of the configuration setting 
and links to help documentation (and other potential resources) that directly 
relate to the setting.

This would be a more immediate way to inject context-sensitive help into NiFi 
leveraging current capability. However, users would still be required to 
interrupt workflow and seek help info. Future, long-term enhancements can focus 
on a more integrated approach to display help information, one that requires no 
interaction from a user and that potentially could be toggled on/off depending 
on the user's expertise.
