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