This unstructured XML output from download tool happened without API key as well. Alteryx support also admitted it's a download tool defect, but I've been thinking about how to work around the issue. But it's not really successful.
Method 1: Add a filter tool that contains the unstructured words and iterate the workflow until there is no unstructured xml output
This method temporary solves, but the unstructured xml output from download tool happens randomly. Therefore, whenever we received the error, we have to add new unstructured key into the filter tool which is a time consuming process.
Method 2: Insert a XML tool within the iterative macro and iterate when the record numbers don't match before and after the XML tool
This method doesn't work because the XML tool gives me an error message and stop running the workflow. When I select "Ignore XML Errors and Continue", it doesn't solve the issue because the unstructured XML is not iterated and the data is not parsed through the xml parse tool.
I've attached the workflow that contains both method. Usually when you run the workflow for 5 - 10 times, you will get an error message.
