Thanks Joe and Matt. @Joe, based on your comment, I need to use NiFi as a producer which puts the data on Kafka queue and then have NiFi consumer, which writes the data back to the destination. Is my understanding correct?
@Matt, My use case is for the DynamoDB. I will look into whether incremental copy is supported for Dynamodb. Thanks again and felt so good to see the vibrant community. I got my questions answered within five minutes. Kudos to NiFi community.
