[Bug] Convert to Macro Output bug on Iterative macros

Alteryx Certified Partner

I recently noticed a bug/defect affecting macro outputs on Iterative macros. I am not sure where do I post this, so I am sending it here. 

 

If I use the new option to convert a Browse tool into a Macro output, change my workflow to Iterative Macro and then try selecting it as the iteration output, it won't show up on the list. 

 

I can only get Outputs showing up there if they were created by dragging and dropping from the tool pallet. 

 

I'm attaching a screenshot and a test workflow where I could replicate the issue.

Hi @gabrielvilella 

 

This definitely looks like a bug.  If you convert to a macro output there doesn't seem to be any way to get it to show up in the Iterative Output list.  

 

You can open a new support case here.  Include the workflow as well.

I am able to reproduce the issue.  I will check if we already have a defect for it or if I need to create a new one. I will be in touch as soon as possible.

Defect is still open.
