Is there currently a way to insert an image into the KNIME workflow like an annotation? I can give several use cases where this could be helpful:
Add a a screenshot of a high level business process flow that helps explain the end-to-end process into which a node you have built fits. This is especially helpful when building a set of nodes for a multi-step real life process where the user runs part of a flow, takes the results and does something that needs user interaction then runs a second flow (or the rest of the flow) using their work as input.
(Current use case for me right now) I am documenting a solution to a problem with a flow we have where the input files are bad, and have duplicate keys. I have written a simple analysis that can be done on the input file to catch the problem at an appropriate point. By including this analysis as part of our over all process, we can catch this problem and prevent it happening. Now I am looking for where to plug the analysis into my flow, and have found several viable options.
- Option A. Before the first process in the flow is run (high level of end user control)
- Option B. Inside the first process at a specific spot in a loop (catch the problem, but less end user control)
- Option C. At the end of the first process (Database writes only happen in the 2nd process, but then also need to add the check to the process 2 flow as users might not deal with the problem).
I want to grab a screenshot of the current flow to show where I am thinking for option 2 rather than have to open up the node in front of the business who really don’t care about the technical details. Putting an image into the flow for discussion and potential communication to the development team once a decision is made would be really helpful,
PS: I already have proper database transaction handling in my flow, so it doesn’t crash, justthinking about where best to solve this specific problem and give a report to the end users
PPS: I think this pose is related to / asking the same as the below link. I Wish this was still open as it seems relevant, and I would have liked to add my voice there.
