How to pull data from FRED at Federal Reserve?

I am trying to pull data using REST API from the FRED database at Federal Reserve but I can not figure out how. I have created the API key bu registering an account but then what, please help?

They have pretty good documentation it seems. They give examples on which URL to call for certain sets of data

Such URL’s you can use to populate the GET Request node in KNIME for example.

The above page also has a lot of example workflows that use this node.

There are lots of ways to implement the FRED Api. Frankly the easiest method is to use their Excel add-in. Its easy to use and can download data for downstream processing in Knime. If you want to do it entirely in Knime, try this workflow.
