I’m trying to download a file from a URL which is obtained from a rest web service by get request.
I separated the URL from the response and transformed it to a flow variable by table row to flow variable node.
The URL is clean and directly points to a .jpg file but I get this error msg from “file download” node: Variable “url” does not denote a valid file: https//…
Also when I want to use https connection node to pass the URL to “download” node, I get this error for inputting the URL manually: failed to apply settings: Host invalid. Host must not include scheme, user, port, path or query
And there is no settings in flow variable tab for this node showing error msg: "Panel does not reflect current settings; failed to save intermediate settings: Host invalid, Host must not include scheme, user, port, path or query (This is shown even for a blank node without any configuration)
Please use the String to URI to convert your URL to a valid URI. Then you can pass the created URI as a flow variable (using the Table Row to Variable node) to the Download node and use it for the Source file parameter.
I did all you mentioned step by step using “File Download” node and yet I get this:
Variable “URI” does not denote a valid file: https://[address].jpg
As I said, I cannot use http connecton node so I cannot pass the connection information to “Download” node.
You should use the Download node to download files from a server. The File Download node is a quick form which allows a user to choose a location to save a file on a local machine when the workflow is executed on the Web Portal.
To use the HTTPS Connection node, please enter a valid Host name in the following format:
without “https://” or :portnumber or /subdirectory
Thank you so much @amartin.
