Azure Blob Store File Picker

KNIME Azure Cloud Connectors version 4.2.0.v202006171540 by KNIME AG, Zurich, Switzerland

This node reads the Azure Blob Store connection and generates a pre-signed URL that references a blob. The URL is only valid for a specific period of time. Upon expiry, the URL will no longer remain active and an attempt to access the URL will generate an error. Azure Blob Store objects do not have to have their permissions set to public in order to access them. Using the generated pre-signed URL, any KNIME reader can be utilized to directly read the blob without having to fetch the blob locally first.


Remote File
The blob, for which the pre-signed URL should be created.
Expiration Time
The expiration time of the generated pre-signed URL. If the selected expiration time is before the current time, then the default one hour expiration time is used.

Input Ports

Port object containing the connection information to AzureBS.

Output Ports

Variable port object containing the pre-signed URL to a blob.
