Hi Karthik,

I think what you want to be using here is PutSQL, rather than ExecuteSQL. 
is designed to perform a SELECT statement, whereas PutSQL would update a 

PutSQL expects the incoming FlowFile to contain the SQL to execute.
So you could use ReplaceText with the 'Replacement Strategy' set to "Always 
and set the Replacement Value to whatever SQL you want to use. The ReplaceText 
supports the Expression Language, so you can reference whatever FlowFile 
attributes you would
like to formulate the message.

How to get information from the Kafka message into your FlowFile attributes 
depends on the type of
data that you are pulling. If it is JSON, for instance, you could use 
EvaluateJsonPath to extract out
particular pieces of information into FlowFile attributes.

Does this help?
