Server 4.4 URL file access denied

In prior versions of the server (lite, with academic license) I accessed files in a common folder above the workflows. Now, in version 4.4, the server denies access:

This URL fails


error message:

There are messages for workflow …

ERROR: Execute failed: Can't access 'knime://knime.workflow/../File.csv'. (Server returned HTTP response code: 500 for URL: https://IP/com.knime.enterprise.server/rest/v4/repository/workflowParent/File.csv:data)

This URL works


It’s important to have a common directory for multiple workflows. Is there a way around this issue?

The user ID has permission to read and write the common folder and files.


this is a problem with the licences we introduced with the Server 4.4.

Can you write us an EMail to and we will send you the new licence file.

Sorry for the inconvenience!
