after updating the server from 4.1.3 to 4.3.2, I realised, that some of my workflows using the REST nodes did not work anymore. They said something with “null” about the credentials.
I finally figured out that a change from the “Credential input” node to the “Credential configuration” node solved the issue.
I don’t know if this was intended, but I also noticed that the “Credentials input” node is under KNIME 4.3.2 listed as legacy node in the repository, but in the workflow there is no information on the node itself - I am used to see there “legacy” or “deprecated” if I should update the node.
just to clarify, I was writing about KNIME executor 4.1.3 and 4.3.2 and KNIME Server 4.10.3 and 4.12.2
i do not quite get the problem.
Do the rest node not work anymore with the updated credential nodes?
Could you give an example for the problem?
they work well with the new nodes, but in my case the old node did not work anymore and it was not marked as outdated (legacy/deprecated) at the node in the workflow. I just thought I should mention it, due to the downwards compatibility promise in the past .-)
If I find time in the future I might create an exampleWF, but at the moment no chance
this is unexpected. Credentials input node should still work, the promise on backward compatibility still holds.
I just tested it with the versions you mentioned and it works fine for me. Can you check the workflow.knime file within the workflow folder and provide information on the “created by” element? This should provide information on the version which was used to create (or change) the workflow.
Thanks a lot for your help Marten!
Seems not to be a general issue and can not be fully reproduced by me anymore.
