I have a workflow published on the Knime server that uses quick forms to get user inputs for its execution.
In parallel to this type of execution, I would like to be able to use the job scheduler to run this workflow on a regular basis. In that case, I will use default values for user input parameters.
How can I do this with the same workflow? My understanding is that if I want to run the workflow with the scheduler, I should use global variables that I will set up when I schedule the job – I do not need quick forms then. Is there a way to enable/disable usage of global variables depending on the execution mode (batch scheduler/interactive mode)? A workaround is to make a copy of that workflow, set default values for quick form entries, set up the scheduler and uncheck the “reset before execution” option but we then have 2 different versions of the same workflow for similar usage. I am not sure this is the best approach.
Thanks in advance for your help,
