Reading a Json file from a render farm and display in UI Table

Hi,
I made a small personal Render-Farm that writes and overwrites a Json text file to an ftp every minute. In Node Red I read this text file with a "http request node" that then gets fed into a UI Table. The Table gets filled out correctly. The only issue I have is that the "http request node" doesn't read the latest version of this text file. So the text file updates every min with new data. If I go directly to the http link of the text file with a browser I see the data getting updated every min. But in Node Red the "http request node" doesn't seem to update. Whenever I send a Get it reads the first text file that was made. It's like it doesn't clear the history or something. How does one read a text file on a http link in Node Red?

Below an example of the text file:

This is what the table looks like when I read the text file with the http request node:

Since you havent shared your flow its little difficult to check anything.
I dont know if this applies to the Http request node but .. could this be a caching issue ?
There is a request header that controls the caching :

Does sending/setting this header just before the request node fix the issue ?

Example :
msg.headers["Cache-Control"] = "no-cache"

Here is the node flow:

is there a reason you have "Enable connection keep-alive" checked ?
does it make a difference if you disable it ?
have you tested the no-cache header suggestion ?

I had the "Enable connection keep-alive" disabled before.. I was just trying to get it to work. I'm not sure how to implement the No Cache. Do I put a function node between timestamp and the http request node?
If so That is what I tried and it didn't work.

yes .. a function or a Change node would do but it seems that thats not the problem.
I created a server on my system serving a text file with your data and did an http request to read it.
then made a small change, saved and read it again. The changes are read by the http request in my test with no problem.

are you sure its the http request that its not reading the changes in your flow ?
have you wired a debug node directly after the request node to confirm that?

I've send you a private message with the url.

OK so it works, only thing I can't figure out is how to get the value in the progressbar. Like in the example to the left. It shows 90% in the progressbar.

This is the flow used so far. Special thanks to UnborN...

And this is a Python script I used. It writes a JSON format in a text file called "node_red_dummy.txt" and saves it every 10 sec to an FTP. The PROG and FRAMES data changes every 10 sec.
This I've used to test if the HTTP Request Node actually updates the data.
PS. I'm not a programmer so the script might not be ideal but it works for me.
But I put it out here for anybody starting out like me using the NR UI Table.

Special Thanks to @UnborN for helping me out... I owe you a few beers :wink:
