POST request form data

I am wondering how to perform a POST request to this endpoint with a form data payload in Knime without using non-partner extensions (like Palladian).

In Postman, I’m performing this request with no additional headers aside from the default ones pre-computed by Postman itself

In Knime, the POST request node fails with

error 400: Invalid client

supposedly meaning that some error has to be in the client_id parameter, although it’s completely correct. Even curl does not pose this error, only Knime does.

At the moment I worked around this error by using a Python / Java snippet node, but I was wondering if there was a native solution to this.
The API has free registration if anyone wants to try it. During registration it asks for an affiliated company, but you can type anything.

Turns out that a body with a JSON payload isn’t the correct way to do so. Based on this StackOverflow article, keys and values should be paired with a = and separated by a & just like a normal GET request would behave.

Thus, in my case, instead of passing the body as

“client_id” : “my_client_id”,
“client_secret” : "my_client_secret,
“grant_type” : “client_credentials”

I passed


and it worked.
