Sorry, I misunderstood the original question. I thought you wanted to get
able to get the URL for a specific processor in the REST API. You actually
wanted the UI URL with the query parameters for the component in question.
This does require the parent Process Group ID and unfortunately, it is not
possible yet. I've filed a JIRA to address this in the future .
The red indicators you mentioned are bulletins. Bulletins are designed to
be a notification about a passing event. They are not meant to be a
persisted or acknowledged in any manner. The main factor there is the rate
at which they are generated. A bulletin will be created for every log
message with a severity matching or worse than the configured threshold. If
you're looking to do something more meaningful with the logs you may want
to consider introducing a tool built for that. We do offer a Reporting Task
that will send the Bulletins via Site to Site to another NiFi instance
which could be used to load/store them someplace.
