Introduction

KNIME Hub is the place where you can search for nodes, extensions, components, and workflows made available by the community.

You can use these as blueprints and building blocks in KNIME Analytics Platform, and build workflows to solve your data science use cases.

KNIME Hub can also be used to upload and organize workflows in a central place, and to collaborate with other users on your projects.

Via KNIME Hub you can:

  • Find workflows, components uploaded by KNIME Community

  • Upload and organize your workflows and components in projects

  • Create and manage projects

  • Collaborate with other users on your projects

Collaboration on KNIME Hub

KNIME Community Hub is also the place where you can collaborate with the KNIME Community. Once you have created your profile and uploaded your items in your public spaces you can share them with others, you can remain engaged in other people’s work by liking items or leaving a comment. Finally, you can also add other users from the KNIME Community as contributors to your public spaces. They will be able to access your space from their KNIME Hub profile and from their KNIME Hub mount point on KNIME Analytics Platform, download, and upload workflows or components. Add contributors to your spaces to collaborate on a project and keep all workflows always accessible in one place.

In the same panel, you can also manage the contributors. Click on the bin icon to remove a contributor from the space.

When you are added as a contributor to a space you will be able to see the space under Spaces in your profile page and also listed in your KNIME Hub mount point from KNIME Analytics Platform.

Contributors have edit rights for the space they are added to. They can add and edit workflows or components on the space. They do not have the same rights that the owner of the space has. Only the owner of a space can change the space name or change the space visibility to private.

Please notice that since contributors can only be added to public spaces, the contributors will not have access to the space anymore in case the space visibility is changed from public to private.
