How to open multiple xml files using Analytical App workflow saved in Alteyrx Server




I have multiple xml files that are saved in a zip folder.  I would like to read those xmls using Analytical App workflow saved in the Alteryx Server.  Folder browse tool cannot be used in analytical app published to the web.  Therefore, I used file browse tool and input tool to read zip folder.  This workflow works fine in Alteryx designer, however, when I uploaded it into the server, I got an error: "File Upload Error - Requested file format is not supported".


I attached a sample workflow.


Thank you for your help in advance!

Hi @knozawa,


Unfortunately, ZIP files are not supported in the Gallery at this time. Please feel free to submit this as an idea in the Community Ideas section. If it gets enough stars to get the developers attention, this feature could find its way into the product in the future. 


Thank you.
