How to read binary data after download using HTTP Request without download it into local or server?

I need to download it, then Read Binary File without put into my local computer or company server.
Is that possible? Or I need add one more Node to complete my task.

My error is different in every expression.

Hi @farhan_yusuf, you wouldn’t need the Read Binary File node (which reads a file from your file system) if you already have binary data coming from the HTTP Request node.

If you’re downloading a spreadsheet file you can read it straight away like so:

Just make sure you use the same binary property name in both nodes:


Hope this helps!


Successful ! Thank you for your help…

Hi ! I am used to the http node + read spreadsheet node to extract and read a file.
I tried with a .xlsx file and the http request works fine but the output binary data doesn’t provide any file on the click to download. I test the same request on postman, it works fine.
It also works fine with a .csv format file.

Does someone has the same problem ?

My config :

  • cloud offer
  • instance : 1.16.0 (latest stable)
