Don't write to file if workflow has error

Hello,

how can we implement in an Alteryx Workflow something like transaction and rollbacks if the workflow contains errors. The problem is that we join results from multiple not so reliable API requests where sometimes one of them breaks and we would like to avoid writing to the excel file

Hi @Dennisklad1 

 

Would enabling the 'cancel running workflow on error' setting do the trick? Or do you require something a bit more nuanced?

@Dennisklad1 ,

 

Additionally, you can use the Message Tool in conjunction with @Luke_C  method above. The Message Tool will allow you to specify criteria that is / is not met and cause the workflow to error. It is a great means of performing validation checks.
