Data connection Error

Highlighted
5 - Atom

Hi, I recently migrated from Alteryx 2018 to 2019.

I am not able to open  and configure neither the input tool in any of the previous workflows nor "manage data connections" .

In the  input tool for an alias connection, I am encountering the error "Parse error: invalid document structure at line 1 and column 1 while processing "AliasFileXml" " and when I try to open manage data connections "internalerror in SRC_GetcosmeticName_Raw".

Any recommendations to trouble shoot?

Thank you in advance!

The error suggests that the xml which stores your Data Connections may be corrupted. Any chance you could post it here? You can normally find the file under 

 

 

%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\Alteryx\Engine\UserAlias.xml

 

 
OR 
 

 

%ProgramData%\Alteryx\Alteryx\Engine\SystemAlias.xml
