Call packaged workflows from crew runner macro

Highlighted

Hi 

 

I have two packaged workflows

1. abc.yxzp

2 .xyz.yxzp

 

I need to run package xyz.yxzp after abc.yxzp as xyz should run only after abc succeeds..

 

I have tried to accomplish it as below. I called package abc using crew runner macro in the scheduler. It ran successfully. However, no data was loaded.Then I called just one of them. Even then, the results were identical. 

 

Note: the packages that we are calling already have crew macros in them.

The workflows need to be unpackaged and saved as a yxmd before they can be run. The CREW Runners will not unpackage them for you.

We tried running the master workflow directly when the packages didn't run. The workflows are also giving the same result. 

We neglected to mention earlier that the master workflow already has crew macros. Apologies.

Trying to get the CREW Runner Macro to run a packaged workflow is like trying to edit a photo that's in a zipped folder.  The workflow is not available to the Runner Macro.  The workflow abc.yxzp needs to be extracted so that the Runner Macro can run abc.yxmd. The Runner Macro will not do that for you.
