Discord Integration with Apache NiFi

Discord Integration with Apache NiFi



For Slack, it's easy and built-in but sometimes as I was reminded you may want to send messages elsewhere.   Thanks to Brian Stitt for the starting information.

I created a free Discord Server in a few seconds and was ready to send messages.


You then copy the webhook URL and you are ready to call.   It's a long SSL link, just past that into the InvokeHTTP processor.

In our flow we need to create an SSL Context for NiFi.   If you are using NiFi in a CDP DataHub there's one for you already configured!

The output will not have a body but there will be cool headers if you want to save them or use them for processing.   Otherwise wrap this in a process group and you have an alert system of your own.


Before we call the InvokeHTTP we need to set the username of the bot.


Your message must be encoded as JSON like so:

{
"content":  "This is my message"
}

Let's call the hook with our data every field is important.

HTTP Method:   POST
Remote URL:  https://discord.com ... our copied webhooks link
SSL Context:  Create or use a StandardSSLContextService
Date Header:  False
Follow Redirecrs:  True
Use Digest: False
Always Output Response:  True
Add Response Headers to Request:  False
Content-Type:   application/json
Send Message Body: true
Chunk Encoding:  False
Ignore responses content: false




Here are the results:

We can see the output of the call to Discord Webhook HTTPS REST Endpoint:




We can see our bot, Spidey Bot, has posted some exciting test messages from NiFi.

Ingesting Drone Data From DJII Ryze Tello Drones Part 1 - Setup and Practice

Ingesting Drone Data From DJII Ryze Tello Drones Part 1 - Setup and Practice In Part 1, we will setup our drone, our communication environment, capture the data and do initial analysis. We will eventually grab live video stream for object detection, real-time flight control and real-time data ingest of photos, videos and sensor readings. We will have Apache NiFi react to live situations facing the drone and have it issue flight commands via UDP. In this initial section, we will control the drone with Python which can be triggered by NiFi. Apache NiFi will ingest log data that is stored as CSV files on a NiFi node connected to the drone's WiFi. This will eventually move to a dedicated embedded device running MiniFi. This is a small personal drone with less than 13 minutes of flight time per battery. This is not a commercial drone, but gives you an idea of the what you can do with drones. Drone Live Communications for Sensor Readings and Drone Control You must connect t
