Hoping someone can help me out here as I have suddenly found that in all my workflows I am receiving errors as the Data Cleansing Tool has suddenly stopped working with the error message Data Cleansing "Invalid Path: Cleanse.yxmc".
Even if I create a brand new workflow with just an input tool and data cleansing I still get the error.
I have even uninstalled and reinstalled Alteryx and it still comes up with the error ! :(
How can I see what Path is being used for a tool ?
For anyone that experiences this I thought I would close off the loop as firstname.lastname@example.org were able to find a fix.
The fix they suggested which worked was as follows:
We have seen this when there are possibly duplicate versions that were installed or something was corrupted with the tool. Could you try uninstalling one more time, and then removing (after backing up by making a copy) the following folders and their contents:
I was getting errors on Data Cleansing and other standard-tool macros. I have Alteryx installed on an AWS Workspace as my primary set up, but I have a copy locally as well. This messed up my Workspace install for like 3 days before I found this thread. Luckily I had a back up but it was so frustrating the past couple of days, thank you so much for posting the solution!
3. Restart Designer (to recreate the AddOnDatafolder)
I think could be due to installing some of the Starter Kits, which is the only change I made for my Alteryx supplied macros to become corrupted. It might be worth others validating if this could have been the reason for them too?
