Hi,

 

There is a command line utility "AlteryxEngineCmd.exe" under "C:\Program Files\Alteryx\bin"

 

so using the above Utility you can pass the argument

 

please refer the below link for each type of module

Please keep in mind that in order to run Alteryx from the command line your license will need to grant permission to use the feature API and command line interface.

 

Otherwise when you try to run a command it will simply say "The Feature API is not licensed"

 

To check this, go to Options -> Manage Licenses and see if API & Command Line w/ Scheduler is checked.

You can run AlteryxEngineCmd in a couple of ways:

  1. From command prompt (or Powershell)
  2. Using the Run Command tool in Alteryx
  3. By configuring an Event in Alteryx

There's a lot of flexibility...

You can buy another license to use the exe or just write a script in autoIT or autohotkey to open Alteryx and hit run button.

 

The ability to run from cmd on desktop should be included in desktop license in my opnion.

Hi ,

       I was wondering if AutoHotkey can be used to press the run button inside the workflow after the alteryx file has been opened ? Could you please give me some hints regarding this

@michael_treadwell, I was wondering what it takes to get the "API & Command Line w/ Scheduler" feature of your licence checked. Thanks!

@DultonM this is a job for Alteryx Fulfillment. Contact your sales rep about getting the command line enabled for your license.
