Secure WebHDFS via KNOX Connection (legacy)

KNIME connector for Apache KNOX version 4.3.1.v202101261633 by KNIME AG, Zurich, Switzerland

This legacy file handling node has been replaced by the HDFS Connector (KNOX) and will become deprecated in the foreseeable future. For further information about the new file handling framework see the File Handling Guide.

This node configures the connection information that will be used to connect to a HDFS behind a Apache KNOX gateway using WebHDFS.



Full KNOX deployment URL including cluster name e.g. https://<server>:8443/gateway/<default>/webhdfs/v1 (replace <server> with the fully qualified hostname and <default> with you cluster/topology name). Protocol should be https and port 8443 on most deployments.
This node supports only HTTP basic authentication with username and password.


Specify the timeout for the connection in milliseconds here.
