Stop workflow to ensure nodes are being configured correctly


I have a Workflow with several nodes which require a manual configuration by me before my Workflow should be executed. Excel Reader nodes need a new path configuration, some Constant Value Nodes need new input, a Rule Engine Node needs to adjusted and some Row Filters need to be configured.

I’m looking for a way to force me to perform these node configurations each time before I execute my workflow. Ideally stopping the workflow if those modifications have not been done.

I’m using KNIME 4.6.3 currently. I asked ChatGPT about this and it suggested using a “Node View: Configure” by way of rightclicking on a node but either it’s hallucinating or my version does not support this.

I was wondering if there is a “simple” way to achieve this?

I use this component. You just attach it to a node by flow variable. When disable is selected it will turn off all downstream execution.

You just need to remember to make sure it is set to disable before before saving or when opening.
