CDD Connect for KNIME

This connector allows KNIME components to communicate directly with your vault in CDD Vault® (API required - please note that not all vaults have the API activated, in that case, please contact support or your local account manager). It is compatible with Knime Version 2.x, newer 3.x and 4.0.2. Currently, no active development of this plugin is planned, we provide it on an "as is" basis.

To obtain this connector, please scroll to the bottom of this article.  Once you obtained the plugin and followed the installation instructions (see also end of this article), you can use the node within the Knime environment:

Configure the node’s settings to select the Vault, the saved search, project(s) and data set(s) you want to search in, and you have secure access to your most recent data, all from within Knime.

Executing the workflow retrieves the data associated with the saved search in your Vault and you can manipulate as you require, e.g.:
