This node connects to a web server with HTTP(S). The resulting output port allows downstream nodes to read files from a webserver.
Note: This connector provides very limited functionality! It does not support listing, writing or deleting files/folders, nor is it possible to create folders on the webserver. The only operation supported is reading single files. Hence, with this file system it is not possible to interactively browse files, use Writer nodes (e.g. CSV Writer), or read multiple files with a Reader node.
Path syntax: Paths for HTTP(S) are specified with a UNIX-like syntax, and may be suffixed with a query ('?') and or fragment ('#). Non-alphanumeric characters in paths - such as whitespace (" ") - must be percent-encoded . For example /my%20folder/resource?myparam=myvalue#myfragment is an absolute path that consists of:
- A leading slash ( / ).
- The name of a folder ( my folder with percent-encoding), followed by a slash.
- Followed by the name of a file/resource ( resource ).
- Followed by an (optional) query ( ?myparam=myvalue ).
- Followed by an (optional) fragment ( #myfragment ).
