Input Files

GenericKnimeNodes version 1.0.0.v202001091550 by Freie Universitaet Berlin, Universitaet Tuebingen, and the GenericWorkflowNodes Team

With this node you can locate a set of files on your file system that can serve as input for another Generic Knime Node. This is different from "File Reader", in the sense that the files are not read into an internal KNIME Table, but stay on your file system.


Selected Files
The list of full names (including its directory) of the files. All the files should be of the same file type.
File extension (override)
By default, Input Files will determine the file type by the extension of the files, but this behavior can be overridden (e.g. in case of a custom file extension but known file type). In that case, you can provide the extension for the file type you want the files to be interpreted as.
Resolve to workflow relative path
Instead of absolute file paths the node will pass on paths relative to the workflow in the format knime://knime.workflow/<path>
