Google Drive Connector

Google Drive filehandling extension for KNIME Workbench version 4.3.0.v202011261604

This node connects to Google Drive. The resulting output port allows downstream nodes to access the files in Google Drive, e.g. to read or write, or to perform other file system operations (browse/list files, copy, move, ...).

Path syntax: Paths for Google Drive are specified with a UNIX-like syntax, for example /My Drive/folder/file.csv, which is an absolute path that consists of:

  1. A leading slash (/).
  2. The name of a drive (My Drive), followed by a slash.
  3. Followed by the name of a file (file.csv).



Working directory
Specify the working directory of the resulting file system connection, 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. The default working directory is the root "/".


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

Input Ports

Google Service Connection, which is provided by the Google Authentication and Google Authentication (API Key) nodes.

Output Ports

Google Drive File System Connection.
