Where is macro Search Path stored?

Nebula

We are hoping to make sure that all users of the designer can be set up to point to a shared macro path.

In order to do this - we want to include this configuration as part of the installer.

 

 

Do any of you know where these macro search paths are stored - are they in the registry, or a non-obvious file that we can update?

 

thank you all

Hi Sean

 

They are in "C:\ProgramData\Alteryx\DataProducts\AddOnData\Macros\User_02394b0e-ca87-418d-aa68-4b76ccb0669b.ini"

 

I think a file per folder and any guid of your choice.

We got this working @AdamR - thank you!

Now we can build a standard macro search path into our internal installer so that it's zero-config to set this up on each designer client.

 

Appreciate the help!

Hello!

 

I am going to do the same thing as you. I have one question though, is the "user*.ini" file unique per user?

Also, I saw that for users who have not yet activated their licence, the folder does not yet exist yet. I suppose I can created the folder and file as part of our IT rollout, but what about the file name? Did if work to user "any" file name there?
