I have built a custom metadata loader for connect by adapting the alteryx server loader provided by Alteyrx. It uses the same staging tables and Jobs to load into connect.
When the data is loaded in i would like to be able to customise the folder where it lands in the same manner as you would if you had manually created the folder (e.g. change the "Custom name of All Entries group" and "Custom name of Sub-folders group" fields and more)
Is there any way to do this without amending the config files?
I tried creating a manual folder then pointing my loader to it which means i can still modify the folder however the assets i have loaded in do not appear? Am i missing something here or is it my goal not achievable this way?
Hi @HarryM123 I understand the what you want to achieve. The short answer is NO, it cant be achieved without modification of config files. However if your intent is to MOVE ALL workflows (custom AND ALSO the workflows from default loader, its technically possible.
If you need to split workwlows with other custom loaded assets, it can be achieved only with config files (and probably database structure) modification. I am afraid that this would not be supported and at your own risk.
The root folder for workflows is beeing searched in sync jov load-alteryx-wf this way:
Basically we search for asset attribute called INTEGRATIION CODE = alteryxworkflows
but if your plan would be to have 2 separeate places for wf and custom assets, you will need 2 sync jobs, and probably 2 sets of stage tables.
Did you considered using VIRTUAL FOLDERS? It might help you...
