I use Parallel Chunk Loops to process files, and they work great for me. However one error that I get consistently is with “URI to Port”, which in my workflow comes immediately after “Parallel Chunk Start”. The first time I try to execute my loop I can count on “URI to Port” failing, with a message of “URI column not set”. Then I check the settings, hit apply - without changing anything - and OK and then the loop runs fine.
Is there an explanation or solution for this?
Essentially, the simplest workflow example I can give of this behavior looks like this:
Input Files -> Port to URI -> Parallel Chunk Start -> URI to Port -> FeatureFinderSuperHirn -> Port to URI -> Parallel Chunk End
The “URI to Port” node will always throw an error until I open the settings and click apply. I don’t change the settings before clicking apply; I just click apply, OK, and then go back and run the last node of this workflow.
