Download node: Download to workflow directory


I'm trying to download a file to the current workflow directory. In the Download node's config option I specified "knime://knime.workflow" as a target folder. However, the file ends up within the bundle (on the Mac). Either I'm doing something fundamentally wrong, or the path is not resolved correctly?

Kind regards,

Hi Philipp,

this is a open feature request from us. Unfortunately the File Utils don't support the knime protokoll completely... only some of them.

You can translate the knime util using first the KNIME Explorer Browser and than the URL to file path node. This generates you the local url, which you finally can use in node.

Let me know if you need an example workflow for this.

Best, Iris

Thanks Iris, that sounds plausible. I'll give it a try!
