I've been trying to fix a colleague's broken workflow by updating the workflow dependencies. The macros, two macros repeated 100 times in the workflow, are broken (Black ? with red !). I have redirected the Workflow Dependencies to the correct macro location but this has not fixed the macro, their status remains the same. Any suggestions? Replacing the macros manually is approximately 2 minutes per macros as clicking each macro to edit it takes this time to become live. It's fair to say there are no Alteryx power users within this team as we are all still learning. Thanks in advance.
Charlie S, thanks for your reply. Enacting those changes did not change the black ?. But looking at the XML in Notepad yielded an interesting result. Using the tool id from designer reveals the result:
I think its the business between <RecordInfo></RecordInfo> that would be a challenge to fix with a find and replace, though it might be feasible with an older version of the workflow and some patience. Probably quicker doing it in Notepad than Designer given that the size of the workflow creates the performance problem noted above. I have a plan of attack now so this is pretty much a note for the community.
I would be interested though for any wisdom on what might have caused this corruption. I think its not the first time its happened in this team, but the first time on this scale.
