Read or fetch CSV files from Google Drive

A client is dropping datasets in CSV files into a Google drive every 15 minutes that I need to process through a KNIME workflow. At the moment I am using Google Sync to get a local copy but as soon as I shut down my computer processing stops (obviously).

Is there a way to use the Google Drive node to connect to the drive to read and process the files so that I can use KNIME which is running on an “always-on” VM to do the work for me without having to use Google Sync?


Hi @TigerCole,

don’t see why not. Use Google Drive Connection together with Download node :wink:



Thanks @ipazin … works like a charm!

The link to my Google drive was a shortcut which did not work, so had to change that, but once sorted it works well.
