Run Workflow upto certain breakpoint

Atom

Hi,

How can i execute Alteryx workflow upto a certain break point to check results at that point instead of executing the entire workflow.

 

Thanks,

Anurag

Hi @Anurag26 ,

 

You can put all the tools that you don't want to execute in a tool container and disable it.

Now you can run your workflow, it will execute till the desired breakpoint only.

 

I have attached a attached an image for your reference.

 

 

Cheers,

Hi @Anurag26 ,

 

The easiest way would be to aggreage the tools into a container and disable it. That way everything that lies wihtin it won't run.

hi @Anurag26 

 

There's no obvious Breakpoint in alteryx, but there is a couple of ways that can simulate it

 

1.  Use a Message tool configured to Error.  Connect this after the last tool you want to monitor.  Make sure your workflow Runtime options are set to Cancel Running Workflow on Error

2 Add your downstream tools to a container and disable the container.  Do this by selecting the tools, Right-click and select Add to New Container.  Disable the container to deactivate all the tools within it.  When you're done debugging, right-click on the container header and select Delete Container Only
