Hi could anyone assist me in understanding why I am unable to execute my KNIME workflow off the KNIME web portal.
I have created Components which get user input parameters successfully off the web portal, but as the workflow reaches the read exel file, the workflow Fails with the following error:
" Excel Reader (XLS) 5:192:179 - ERROR: Execute failed: Direct access to the local file system is not allowed on KNIME Server.
Excel Reader (XLS) 5:192:184 - ERROR: Execute failed: Direct access to the local file system is not allowed on KNIME Server.
I have tried setting up the “Read File From” option on the Excel File reader Node to URL and passed the URL variable but I still yield the same error.
I require this workflow to be used by teams whom have files saved on the local drive and I would like the user to be able to go into the web portal upload their file from there local storage and successfully execute the workflow without the hassle of saving the files to the workspace.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I have attached screenshots of a basic test workflow that attempts the same action but also fails.
