Andrew Lim commented on NIFI-3341:
----------------------------------

Some ideas:  add a "Learn more" link possibly next to the processor name or at 
the end of the current description in the window; hyperlink the processor name.

> In the Add Processor dialog, add a link to the documentation when a processor 
> is highlighted

>             Project: Apache NiFi
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Core UI
>            Reporter: Andrew Lim
>            Priority: Minor
>
> The Add processor dialog only shows a processor's general description when it 
> is selected/highlighted from the list of processors.  If a user wants more 
> information about that processor, s/he has to either add the processor to the 
> canvas and then select "Usage" from the right-click context menu or open up 
> the Help documentation and then find that processor's doc.
> To make this simpler, we should add a link to that processor's documentation 
> to the Add Processor dialog.  This minimal addition will not take up much 
> window real estate, but be very useful to NiFi users, especially those new to 
> NiFi.
