This query relates to an earlier post here, which I haven’t received any comments or answers on. Reading files with Azure Information Protection - KNIME Extensions / Big Data - KNIME Community Forum
As explained in my earlier post, the organisation has applied Azure Information Protection on individual documents, whether spreadsheets, word documents, or other. This means that I can only access those files programmatically if the program also authenticates as an internal user. As the main document storage we have a Share Point on-prem deployment, so in our case the Microsoft Authentication and Sharepoint Online nodes can not be used.
I have been able to use the Erlwood List Files with Authentication node. This is a step forward, because with the Azure Information Protection applied on a document, even the generic List Files/Folders node fails. However, this is only a little help as now I want to start analysing the content of those documents.
Anyone have any solutions in mind?
From KNIME’s side, I wonder if the applicability of the Microsoft Authentication node could be extended so that it could be used in combination with reader nodes such as Excel Reader or Text Processing IO nodes such as Tika Parser?
