Run a workflow with container nodes in batch

Is it possible to execute a workflow with container input and output (table) nodes in batch or through a Python script as it is executed from the Call workflow (table based) node?

Hi there,
no this is not supported. The Container nodes are designed to be used with KNIME Server REST API.

Unless, would something like the knimepy package (see GitHub - knime/knimepy) fit what is desired?

I will explore if knimepy can address the need.
And thanks, Iris, for your answer.

We at NodePit also have something which goes into this direction as part of a bigger project. I realize that more flexible input/output to these container nodes from a CLI might be of general interest to better automate WFs, so I’d be happy to consider sharing this with the KNIME community in the future.

To be frank: It’s not ready and I will give no definite promise, but once there is news I’ll post here. (or feel free to drop an email)

Is there a plan to support the Container (variable) in knimepy in the near future?
And thanks for the information for this project at NodePit.
