I'm fairly new to knime and was wondering if it had any mechanisms for handling the issue of data provenance ? In short, is it possible to create a report/log/audit trail of what transpired to create a specific result or dataset ?
have there been any answers to this question about data provenance?
I'm very new to KNIME and interested in exactly the same thing...
Yes and no: at each point in the workflow one can inspect the data, model, etc. and can provide the results to a report template using the Data or Image to Report nodes. Those data reporting sources are filled during execution and provide some kind of intermediate results wherever needed in the workflow. Unfortunately, there is no other way of keeping track on the data/model/etc. flow. Further details are provided in KNIME Console log output.
