Search into nodes settings

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if it's possbile through a node, or a workflow, to search for a specifc value among nodes settings, or alternatively, to display on the workbench the internal ID of the nodes (0:4, 0:18:1 etc).

For example, suppose that I have a huge workflow with several DB reader nodes, and I want to know in which of them I have a query on a specific table. I can do it of course text-searching into the workflow xml files, and an xml file is contained into the correspoding node folder...but then how can I match the folder name (Eg. \Database Reader #28\ ) with the node on the layout?

Thanks,

Angelo

 

 

Hi Angelo,

"(Global) Timer Info" and "Extract Context Properties" are really useful for this kind of work - they are still a bit of a mystery to me, but if you're really after KNIME metadata this is a good step in the right direction.

EDIT: Unfortunately doesn't quite give you what you're after, at least not entirely... sorry!

Cheers
