Mark Payne commented on NIFI-4940:

[~pvillard] I am probably just missing something obvious here, but I'm not sure 
that I'm following the intent here exactly. It feels very odd to me to haveĀ an 
option to "Normalize Column Names for Avro" type of option on the CSV Reader. 
You also mention that UpdateRecord is not working as expected with "weird" 
column names - so not sure how that ties into Avro. Is the concern here that 
RecordPath is not properly evaluating the field names in some cases? Or is your 
UpdateRecord processor configured with an Avro Writer and that's causing 

> CSVReader - Header schema strategy - normalize names

> When using the CSV Reader with the Header Schema Strategy access, we should 
> add a property (boolean) in case field names should be normalized to be avro 
> compatible. Otherwise it won't be possible, for instance, to use the 
> UpdateRecord processor and access a field with a "weird" name.
