Hi @Sharmila1 

 

You can find more about how to run a workflow on a schedule in our help.

 

Also please note, that you will need either an add on license to Alteryx Designer (Desktop Automation) or Alteryx Server in order schedule workflows.

Could you please confirm whether you're using Desktop automation or Alteryx Server to schedule workflows?

Thanks!

Alteryx Designer. Could you please tell me how to resolve unable to translate alias

If this is an ODBC alias, you need to make sure this is configured as a System Alias

If you're configuring this via Alteryx, make sure you run the Designer as admin and configure the connection as System as well

By default, the schedules are executed using 'local' account which may not have access to connections you've configured under your user. Another alternative would be to configure what's called a 'Run as' user - Options > Advanced Options > System Settings

Thank you for your response. 

 

First point: My output was SQL, In which my data shuld be saved. By normal run it is getting loaded. But through controller(Schedule Workflow) I am getting "Unable to translate alias"

Second Point: Run as , I have added my domain and Credentials. But it is saying "Unvalid user"

Third Point: I am running it as admin but cannot change to "System" the drop down for user, system not getting highlighted. If it get changed to System. I hope it works. But could not. I have selected allow system alias in System Settings.

The reference to "non-elevated" means that you're not running Alteryx as an administrator. If you close the designer and start it again by right-clicking on the application shortcut and selecting Run as administrator, this will elevate your access and will allow you to create system-wide database aliases.
