I am testing out the possibility of using the Command Prompt to run my Alteryx workflows
My first hurdle is to get it to actually run. Every time I run the simple code of "C:\Program Files\Alteryx\bin\AlteryxEngineCmd.exe"MyWorkflow.yxmd I get the following error.
Can someone help in explaining the Error - Alteryx Engine: Can't red the file "TESTWORKFLOW.yxmd". It appears that my computer recognizes Alteryx and runs it but then the file doesn't run. I have attached the simple test workflow as well.
It's not clear from the screenshot you attached, but are you calling the workflow using a fully qualified path? i.e., something like this - from the Alteryx\bin folder, running AlteryxEngineCmd.exe and then...
Have you considered using Python? Using Python + pyautogui, will give you a lot more control in comparison to command prompt. I'm using Python to refresh Alteryx, Tableau Prep, and Tableau. I also use python to pull down flat files into a shared drive where Alteryx can find them, filter Tableau workbooks and transform them into edible PowerPoint files.
