Hi Jason,

This isn't explicitly documented anywhere, however the locations of all the key 
paths for Nifi can be found in the documentation in general. Hopefully a 
combination of this email thread and official documentation should be enough 
for your client to give the AV exemptions you need.

Getting information added to the documentation is simple in one aspect as 
ticket just has to be raised on the ASF Nifi JIRA. However, given that large 
elements of Nifi are configurable via plugins it would be difficult to give 
definitive advise, as different plugins will have different AV requirements.

In the meantime I have created 
NIFI-6553<https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NIFI-6553> to look at improving 
the documentation around this as we are missing other bits of information like 
SELinux configuration that I think would also be useful to have in the 
documentation

The work dir gets created at startup and possible as new nars are loaded.  I 
think you'd be ok to scan this.

The flowfile and content repository and provenance directories as configured 
should be skipped. The logs dir should be skipped.  The state directory should 
be skipped.  All else I believe would be fair game.

Thanks

Joe,
Thank you for the information.  Is this documented anywhere as I have a client 
looking for it from Apache?.
