How can I run an encrypted Alteryx workflow by Double clicking on it?


I've encrypted my alteryx workflows. And i want to run it, as it won't get opened. So, what should I do to execute/run those encrypted alteryx workflows

This would be a trick question ( @ElizabethB  ) for an exam.  When you encrypt a workflow, it can't be opened by the designer for editing.  You can however save the encrypted workflow to the server or scheduled it with desktop automation (purchased separately).  On your desktop, if you want to run an encrypted workflow you would need a CReW macro (Runner) to execute the encrypted workflow otherwise.
