Rest API node to download files from the retailers

Hello all,

one of our retailers have provided api calls to get the retail data on a weekly basis. Rest API call will simply download the CSV from the site. i would like to automate the process in KNIME. I have used the getResource node but beyond i can't proceed to download the csv. Can you help pl.

Thanks,

Rajesh

Hi Rajesh,

you can e.g. use the HTTP connector and Download node to download files via http from a specific URL? Can the CSV file be accessed via http? Or will the content of the file be returned as result of a REST GET or POST call? For the second you can use the REST Web Services nodes i.e. GET Request or POST Request nodes to do a REST call and get back a result.

Cheers, Kilian
