Macro fails when scheduled on Alteryx scheduler


The workflow with macro works perfectly fine when run manually. But when it's scheduled, it fails with the below error:


Cannot find Macro XXXXXXXXXX.yxmc


Points to note:

1. Both Macro and workflow are placed in a shared location.

2. The macro is in the same folder as is the workflow. Also the scheduler has access to that folder.

3. The macro repository is mapped correctly in the designer.

4. Have tried using "All Relative"  and "Absolute" location paths.





When referencing macro in a shared location I'd recommend using a UNC path. This way you're making sure you're referencing absolute path that can be resolved by systems that have access to it.
