KNIME Server Connector

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.
Authenticate with a username and password.
  • Either enter a username and password, in which case the password will be persistently stored (in encrypted form) with the workflow.
  • Or check Use credentials and a select a credentials flow variable to supply the username and password.
