Scheduler does not read workflow on shared drive

5 - Atom



When I schedule a workflow, it fails if the workflow is on a mapped drive. The error message says that it cannot find the workflow itself.


Can the scheduler not recognize workflows that are placed on the shared(mapped) drive? Do they have to be on a local drive.


Note - The schedule runs when I run a copy of the workflow stored in the scheduler database.

Hi @rajatsync 


As well as @edgarl's comment, you have to ensure that the Service account that runs the scheduler has access to the shared drive.  You do this in the Alteryx System Settings app on the Run As... page.
