Python tool not sending field names to rest of workflow

8 - Asteroid

Hi Community,


I am making an API call with the python tool. I am able to export a dataframe to Tableau no problem.


I can't do any data manipulation though, because the field names are not showing up in other tools.


See below:

browse tool loads 121 fields

Select tool results window shows 121 fields

Select tool configuration window shows 0 fields

Auto Field shows 0 fields available for selection


Is there a way I can cache the data between the python tool and Auto Field tool?
