This Node Is Deprecated — This node is kept for backwards-compatibility, but the usage in new workflows is no longer recommended. The documentation below might contain more information.

Quick Form node that allows uploading a file and exposing that uploaded file using a flow variable. The value can also be controlled from a quick form (web port).


A descriptive label that will be shown in, for instance the web port.
Some lines of description that will be shown in the remote control form, for instance by means of a tooltip.
A weight value that influences the position of the component in the final layout. Lighter elements will be placed at the top, whereas heavier items will be placed nearer the bottom. The value is relative to the weights of the other components in the workflow (absolute value is not relevant, only the relative comparison to other elements).
