It's the most wonderful time of the year - Santalytics 2020 is here! This year, Santa's workshop needs the help of the Alteryx Community to help get back on track, so head over to the Group Hub for all the info to get started!
Downloading a file from SharePoint (whatever the file type) to a network drive will involve making similar call to the below and using a Blob Output tool (replace 'yoursiteaddress' with address of your SP site):
Srini: Is your SharePoint installation on your network or is it SharePoint Online? If it's on premises, then getting the file from the library might be as easy as using the Run Command tool to call a .bat file to robocopy from the SharePoint server's file system to a network share.
This is an idea only but could be easily tested. This may or may not work and I make no warranties or promises that it will.
1. Go to the SharePoint list/library and click the View Files in Explorer. (You'll probably need IE 11, if you're on older version of SharePoint, like what we're currently migrating from.)
2. See if you can manually copy the file from the SharePoint directory and paste it to the network location. If it works, then on to step 3
3. Armed with that, see if you can open a Command prompt and use robcopy to get the file to the network drive. I am assuming you have permissions to read from and write to the SharePoint and network directories in question.
4. Use the Run Command to call the batch file.
If this needs to be run by Alteryx Server, then whatever account is used by the server will need to have permissions to both origin and destination directories
