When choosing a saved data source from an input data tool, then choosing our local alteryx gallery then one of the data sources available. I'm presented with the following error message. There weren't any changes to the server when I started getting this error. Has anyone else run into this error? Anyone figure a way to fix it?
I get this message when connecting the .txt files. If I change the path, Alteryx seems to want me to reconfigure the connection, but clicking Cancel effectively tells Alteryx: "Leave the connection configuration along, just change the path."
I've done a bit of research and issue looks to come about when the data connection is not configured properly. I ran a test below creating a connection with invalid information and could replicate the issue you are seeing.
I would recommend checking your connection. With Oracle or SQL you should get an error message when you click 'test' but this functionality is not available yet for all databases. You can create the string in alteryx to ensure that the connection succeeds then copy it and use the same string on gallery (that way you can test it in alteryx and see if you get any errors)
So the weird part is that I'll setup the connection through the gallery for sql server, it will work for some period of time (we've never been able to get it to reliably produce the bug) and then it will cease working.
