Joseph Witt commented on NIFI-5083:

[~rbruno] does this mean you're using the FlowRegistry to ensure both clusters 
have a consistent flow and thus are ending up with the same group id being used?

Adding support for EL to let variables be used is a very doable option and a 
good idea.  Just wanted to understand how you're keeping the flows so in sync 
between clusters that this would be matching at this time.

>             Project: Apache NiFi
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Extensions
>    Affects Versions: 1.6.0
>            Reporter: Robert Bruno
>            Priority: Minor
>              Labels: kafka
> I have the use case where I have two separate NiFi clusters reading data from 
> the same topics but need to have unique group ids so they each get separate 
> copies of the data.  It would be useful if the group id field supported 
> expression language so I could use a processor group variable to define the 
> group id to use.  I have a large enough number of kafka consumers to make 
> this tedious to manually change.
