How to perform Scheduling from Oracle database using Alteryx Designer?


Hey everyone! 


I have a query regarding the scheduling process in Alteryx (admin version). I want to schedule the extraction of tables from the Oracle database. For this, I'm using Alteryx Designer with Scheduler. 


I've tried scheduling using the input tool. The error message popped up in the scheduler window: 

"Unable to translate Alias"


Any suggestions? TIA!

On your desktop you have created an OCI string that isn't define on your server.  The Oracle connection needs to exist on both environments.  Either you need to define the connection string on the server or use something like the following:


oci:<user id>/<password>@<Host Name>:<port>/<Database>



That might solve your need.  I like for help.
