Workflow package - Workflow

Hi all,

 

when I am importing the assets from a workflow package, Alteryx creates a subfolder and the workflow is in this subfolder.

Is there an option to have the workflow on the top level?

 

Thanks and best regards,

Wolfgang

Hi @wolfgangh 

 

When you import the Package, the Destination directory lets you change the output directory.  that allows you to move the entire subdirectory as a whole.  By default, this the current directory with the package name as a subdirectory.  To extract into the current directory, remove the package name from the path.

That was very helpful.

 

Related to this question, is it possible to export the packaged workflow and not have the subfolders "_externals" and "_externals\1" etc. created? There are so many subfolders created when you export. Is it possible to have everything saved in the top folder?

 

Thanks

Deepa

Hi @deepaprash 

 

As I know that's not possible. This is how Alteryx packaged workflow organizes files.
