Manual failure

Hi Team,

 

While executing the workflow if I want to fail the workflow manually based on some condition.

 

Is there any way I can fail the it using some alteryx tool.

Hi Ankita,

 

There sure is. It is called the "Message tool" and is quite usefull. We use it for integrity checks. Please see attached workflow.

 

Best,

Daniel

Very similarly to @danielbrun suggestion, I often use the Test tool to cause the workflow to error. It allows custom rules to be applied much like the message tool.

 

You can make it so that the workflow stops on an error (a setting in the properties pane) so no further processing takes place.
