Rule Engine Config-Interface Incomplete with Collection Table only

Hi there,

I happen to face an odd interface issue when trying to configure the Rule Engine Node whcih is only fed with a table containing collection, set and / or list, columns only.

On another note, the interface becomes barely usable with very long column names. Resizing literally breaks the interface. It’s an unusual use case but might point towards a generic lack of interface “boundaries” to set in order to ensure funcitonality upon facing edge cases.

Hi @mwiegand

This is a known issue already reported. The internal ticket reference number is AP-17738.

From the knime.log, it seems to me, this node needs a column with one of “DoubleValue” “IntValue” “StringValue” or “BooleanValue” to function properly. This makes the issue low priority issue. Nevertheless, I will add you as +1 in the ticket.

Regarding the long column name making the dialog unusable, I couldn’t reproduce it. Meaning, I can resize and scroll horizontally without a problem. I am running AP v4.6.3 on MacOS Monterey.
