MACRO DEBUG debug_temp.yxmd DOES NOT EXIST

I was using the macro debug capability through the Interface Designer this week without a problem, but today started getting the following message saying the:
The file "debug_temp.yxmd" does not exist

Anyone know how to fix that?

I am running Designer through and RDS installation.  No known charges have been done to the RDS environment that I am aware in the last few days from when the debug utility was running fine until now.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @kruckit 

 

Have you left your instance of Alteryx open the whole time?

 

When you open a debug workflow it loads to a temp directory. Housekeeping may have run and removed the file.

 

In which case you can either; open a new debug workflow or save the workflow back down to a location on your machine/network.

 

Or have I missed it entirely?

I have been in and out of the app multiple times and have had the issue multiple times.

I assumed that I can run a debug on any Designer file that has an interface element.  Is that true?  Or does it only work on specific extensions?

Ah great spot.

 

Yeah if its being saved as a .yxmd (Alteryx Workflow) it will be treated as such, so won't load any interface options.

 

If there is an interface it should either be a .yxmc (macro) or .yxwz (analytic app)

Hi @kruckit , I know it's been a few months but I think I have figured this out. I am running 21.3 and I get this error when I am running the analytic app with AMP engine when there are non-AMP enabled tools in the workflow. Turning off AMP in the source workflow fixes it.

Thanks for the hint, I was able to run the app successfully.

 

it's weird that AMP Engine is the reason for the workflow not to pick the interface tool changes.
