To starts of a KNIME workflow via power Automate desktop


is it possible to start a KNIME workflow via WINDOWS power Automate desktop?


I think it could work if you using the commandline and excecute knime in batch mode rather then the application itself

@Daniel_Weikert :thinking: Batch mode has a problem with my wofklow !

I can’t comment on Power Automate, but I’ve made Batch mode work. I’ve found that Batch doesn’t handle relative paths of files particularly well though. Possibly set your file paths to local paths (ie. C:/Documents/myFile.csv) and see if that works.

If so, there are things you can do to get relative paths to work, but it might be a useful first step in problem solving.

Hello @dpowyslybbe,

below my batch-file to start my workflow:

@echo off
echo ================
*“C:\Program Files\KNIME\knime.exe” -consoleLog -nosplash -reset -application org.knime.product.KNIME_BATCH_APPLICATION -workflowDir=“C:\Users\username\knime-workspace\Example Workflows\isoloc-US\Auftragsbestand_1_aus_hsabiso2” *



Hi, I’m interested in this question too. Have you had a solution in executing your KNIME workflow through PowerAutomate?

Unfortunately not yet, in the end Power Desktop is similar to task
scheduling in Windows.

Ul look into it further, but I think it will come down to batch mode
