Can you please add a setting to the Dynamic Input tool where the developer can choose to treat different schemas as either Errors, Conv Errors or a Warning?
Depending on which of these issues are flagged during a workflow run my management of it differs. I tend to ignore warnings, yet pay attention to Errors and Conv Errors.
Hey @AndrewW - am I right that this would then mean that if the schema is different, and you set this to warning or ignore, then the Dynamic Input tool would union the data to form the new schema?
This would simplify the need to read multiple different schema into a dataset.
@SeanAdamsmy Alteryx is a bit rusty, I haven't used it for over a year now. However, I recall creating this idea because a change in schema using the Dynamic Input tool didn't error, leaving me thinking everything was ok, when actually a few files had been missed. I think it continued running and ignored the file with the changed schema?
What I wanted it to be able to do is raise an error, so I know something is badly wrong, such as a data provider changing their data structure. I pay attention to errors, but warning are so frequent they are ignored.
Not sure if I would want it to union the data, effectively creating a new schema. Perhaps having that as an additional setting may be a good thing?
