Is it possible to open the 10.5 workflow in 10.1?

Alteryx Certified Partner

Hi,

 

I have come across a problem is that I used 10.5 to build some workflows and I want to show to my clients. But they are using 10.1....is there any ways to open the workflow in 10.1?

 

Thanks.

Haha, I found a way to do it. But this may not be a good method and still welcome if there is any safe/official ways.

 

Just open the workflow in xml format with a note pad and change the version. Then you can open it with 10.1

 

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<AlteryxDocument yxmdVer="10.0">

A good tip - use it when I post solutions for people not on 10.5. 

 

Works back to at least v9 as well - assuming you arent using tools from a later version. If you do have new tools they will just appear as an unknown tool.

@kennethli is correct, set the version in the *.yxmd to "10.0" - the only caveat here is if the workflow has a feature, tool, configuration that was introduced in 10.5.
