> Date, Time, or Timestamps

>                 Key: NIFI-4951
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NIFI-4951
>             Project: Apache NiFi
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>            Reporter: Derek Straka
>            Priority: Major
> Currently, AvroTypeUtil::convertToAvroObject assumes that the logical types 
> have already been converted into their internal representation.  While this 
> may sometimes be the case, it would be useful to allow String->Logical type 
> conversion.  The feature can be added by using the appropriate 
> DataTypeUtils::to<Logical Type> method rather than blindly attempting to use 
> the underlying type.  The DataTypeUtils already performs the integral type 
> parsing, so the existing functionality remains intact.
