sharepoint online error (illegal charactor in path in List Files Node)

Next, when I try to use List FIles/Folders, if the folder name contains [, I get an error saying “illegal character in path at index **”. An error does not occur with the { character, but what can I do to prevent an error from occurring even with the [ character?

Hello @Kuribayashi,

and welcome to KNIME Community!

I have just tested this and I’m able to normally list file with [ character using List Files/Folders node after SharePoint connection. Which KNIME version are you using? (I have tested with v4.7.7)
