This node supports the path flow variable to specify the base location. To convert the created path variables to string variables which are required by some nodes that have not been migrated yet you can use the Path to String (Variable) node. For further information about file handling in general see the File Handling Guide.
Creates a temporary folder upon execute and exposes its path as flow variable. This can be useful in (a) demo applications where the actual path of the output is not all that relevant, e.g. the KNIME public workflow server and (b) KNIME WebPortal and quickform flows, where some data is written, which is later downloaded by means of, e.g. a web link. The folder is deleted upon closing the workflow. The node can be also configured in a way that the created temporary folder is deleted upon reset.
Note: By default the temporary folder is created directly in the workflow data area, as defined by “.“ in the Folder field
