Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 Connector

ADLS extension for KNIME Workbench version 4.2.0.v202104131737

This node connects to Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 (ADLS Gen2). The resulting output port allows downstream nodes to access the ADLS Gen2 data 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, ...).

This node requires the Microsoft Authentication to perform authentication. The following authentication modes are supported:

  • Interactive Authentication
  • Username/password Authentication
  • Shared key authentication (Azure Storage only)
  • Shared access signature (SAS) authentication (Azure Storage only)

Path syntax: Paths for ADLS Gen2 are specified with a UNIX-like syntax, for example /mycontainer/myfolder/myfile, which is an absolute path that consists of:

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



Working directory
Specifies the working directory using the path syntax explained above. The working directory must be specified as an absolute path. A working directory allows downstream nodes to access files/folders using relative paths, i.e. paths that do not have a leading slash. If not specified, the default working directory is /.


Service calls timeout
The time in seconds allowed between sending a request and receiving the response.

Input Ports
