The following matrix shows the compatibility between KNIME Server installations and KNIME Executor installations. This does not show compatibility between local KNIME Analytics Platform client installations and KNIME Server. See the other matrix on this page for information related to this.

KNIME Server - KNIME Analytics Platform Client Compatibility Matrix
The following matrix shows the compatibility between local KNIME Analytics Platform client installations and remote KNIME Server installations.
Please note that even though it is possible to connect to an older version of KNIME Server from a newer version of KNIME Analytics Platform, there could be some restrictions in terms of workflow execution. Some features introduced in newer versions will not be available on an older KNIME Server (e.g. new nodes), causing problems during execution. Because of that, the default for all KNIME Server installations is to reject workflows created with newer versions of KNIME Analytics Platform.
To avoid any issues, we strongly encourage using a version of KNIME Analytics Platform from the same release line as your KNIME Server installation. Please reach out to your KNIME Server administrator in case you are unsure about which version of KNIME Server your organization is currently using.
On the other hand, it is often possible to connect to a newer version of KNIME Server from an older version of KNIME Analytics Platform. Please note that while this works, you will in many cases miss functionality, as is indicated in the table below.
