I searched in this community, trying to find an example solution of API call CSV data (input a link and then parse data), with downloadable Alteryx file, but I haven't found one.
I saw some post might be a good example, but the URL does not work for me after I downloaded the file. I need a use case with a working URL. Does anyone knows a link to an ideal solution or can post an Alteryx file?
the most typical way this is done is by using a text input tool along with a download tool. There are two different routes from there, depending on how you wish to proceed.
The first step is inputting your url into the text input tool and then connecting to the download tool. The main choice you will need to make here is where the downloaded data is stored, either as a single string or as a temporary file.
downloading as a string will require you to parse the field using a parse tool or other methods. Downloading as a temporary file then requires a dynamic input tool, but won't require the parsing so it could in fact be a simpler route.
Could be an issue with your firewall/proxy/proxy scripts. I'm assuming you can paste the URL into a browser though and see the data, correct? If so, best to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. They had to help me with my proxy settings, as well as my internal IT/Security group.
