hello,

I hacve designed 2 chained apps to be used from gallery

the 1st one create a file named toto.xls

and the 2nd on reads it as .\toto.xls

As i read , this should work

but in fact, I have this error message

any idea ?

public gallery or private gallery? I don't think you can use chained apps on public gallery. Can you post more of your first workflow? like maybe output data screen? Your message asks about a .xlsx file but your .png references errors in your workflow writing .yxdb so there's a disconnect between what you want and what the app is set up to do.

 

Can you confirm that this runs on your pc?

hello.

thanks for the answer

it is a public gallery

the 1st app creates 2 files used by the 2nd one. they can be whatever type, the result is the same

if I run only the 1st one, the fils are created and I do't have any error message

Hello @olivierMPW,

 

The message said access denied that's mean you're note allowed to create files on the server.

You have to use an absolute path instead of a relative path.

Try to replace .\toto.xlsx to path like X:/yourpath/toto.xlsx. 

==> it's important to replace the \ with / in order to keep the path absolute otherwise alteryx will change it to external\toto.xlsx.

 

Hope this helps,

Regards

thanks for the answer

the problem occurs only when I chain the 2 apps.

If I run only the 1st one , I don't have any problem and the file is created

Hello @olivierMPW,

 

I see the problem. Looks like alteryx still using the file on the first app that's way.

Try to add a block until done tool on the first output (First App) and test.

 

Hope this helps!

@olivierMPW,

 

Please check this post : https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Alteryx-Server-Discussions/Chained-Apps-Error-creating-the-file/td-... 

 

You have to remove the run as configuration on the server.

 

Hope this helps,

Regards,
