I was hoping that someone could help me with an issue I'm having. I'm trying to replicate in Alteryx an API call that uses Curl. The host I'm making the call to requires that an XML file be attached using the '--data-binary' flag.
I've tried pasting the XML data directly into the Download tool in the 'Use Following for Query String/Body' field, and I have also tried creating a field using the formula tool and using that field. I get a basic 'Data type not supported' error back from the host using both methods.
have you tried just using the RunCommand tool? it could also be the curl version that is delivered with Alteryx not supporting your request. If you can execute your desired command via the command line, you can use the run command tool and do exactly the same thing within Alteryx.

Chaos reigns within. Repent, reflect and reboot. Order shall return.
Thank you for the reply. I had considered that but I am on a new laptop and don't have curl installed yet. Or, at least, I thought I didn't. I completely missed where it's included with the Alteryx Designer install. I'll give it a try.
