This node configures the connection information that will be used to connect to the Google Cloud Storage. Using this connection, the other KNIME remote file handling nodes can be used to create directory, list, delete, download and upload files from and to Google Cloud Storage.
The connection information is encoded in the format gs://<project>/<bucket>/<path> . The protocol is gs and the host the project identifier. The first folder is the bucket name and the rest is the object name, e.g. gs://123456/my-bucket/data/iris.data defines the object data/iris.data in the bucket my-bucket .
This is a legacy node that has been replaced by the Google Cloud Storage Connector and will become deprecated in the foreseeable future. For further information about the new file handling framework see the File Handling Guide.
