KNIME Server Connector

KNIME nodes to connect to KNIME Server version 4.12.3.v202105242123 by KNIME AG, Zurich, Switzerland

This node connects to a KNIME Server via REST. The resulting output port allows downstream nodes to access the Server workflow repository as a file system, e.g. to read or write files and folders, or to perform other file system operations (browse/list files, copy, move, ...).

Path syntax: Paths for KNIME Server are specified with a UNIX-like syntax, for example /myfolder/file.csv, which is an absolute path that consists of:

  1. A leading slash (/).
  2. Followed by the name of a folder (myfolder), followed by a slash.
  3. Followed by the name of a file (file.csv).



The URL of the KNIME Server, for example https://server:8443/knime/.
The Server URL can be entered by copying the link of the Server's WebPortal using a browser and pasting it into the field, or by choosing a Server mountpoint via the Select... button.
If no port is provided the standard ports for https and http are used.
Specify the authentication method to use:
  • Credentials: Authenticate with the username and password of the selected credentials flow variable.
  • Username & password: Authenticate with the provided Username and Password. The password is persistently stored (in encrypted form) in the settings of this node and will be saved with the workflow.


Connection timeout (seconds)
Timeout in seconds to establish a connection, or 0 for an infinite timeout.
Read timeout (seconds)
Timeout in seconds to read data from an established connection, or 0 for an infinite timeout.
