google address geocoder

I am learning to use geo nodes. When I tried to execute Google Address Geocoder, always it is reported " ERROR Google Address Geocoder 0:14 Execute failed: ws.palladian.extraction.location.geocoder.GeocoderException: Encountered HTTP exception for “ …”. I have entered the API key in Preferences—>Palladian Geocoders. Someone has an idea?


Hi Lei,

this rings a bell – could you please have a look at this thread:

Please keep me posted here.

hi Philipp,
thanks for your suggestions. I checked API, it showed enabled there, but I am not totally sure. I have the debug responses in the attachment (.txt), would you please have a look. I …ehhh…do not understand them :joy: :sob:.

Thanks for the details, Lei. From looking at the log, my first, most likely assumption is a network issue. Are you behind a corporate proxy or firewall? Do other nodes or functionalities which require a network connection inside KNIME work?

If your network setup requires a proxy configuration, please check the preferences -> General -> Network Connection and ask your network administrator about the setup.

To further diagnose: Could you try executing the attached test workflow and let me know the outcome? (it’ll simply perform a GET on two example URLs, one through HTTP and one through HTTPS)

well, Philipp, you are right. I have to use a proxy, otherwise no way to access Google in China…I do not know how to solve it. I will try. Naja, please see the outcome in the attachment (.txt).

Hi @zhang2020,

I’m currently staying in China and saw your post while trying to figuring out my connecting issues.

I am having issues connecting Google API with VPN (error message on Node showing: Could not connect Google API). Was wondering if you are able to connect to Google API / Google Analytics by chance?

Thanks in advance!
