Internal working of the Crew Macro

Hi Guys,


Can someone help me to understand how the crew macro is able to trigger an Alteryx job even if the Alteryx does not have a "Desktop Automation license" or "API License" activated in it?


I checked the crew macro package and found that "AlteryxRunner.exe" file is the one that triggers the job. But have no idea what is happening inside it.


Need help!!!
