Direct access to cloud file storage for Server

It would be really helpful if Alteryx server could connect directly to files on cloud file storage such as Dropbox, Box and OneDrive.  For example; a workflow could access specific source files or a folder with multiple files stored on Dropbox and could run the workflow against those files and then write the output to another folder on Dropbox.  We are making less and less use of internal file servers, so accessing files directly from the cloud allow for additional deployment scenerios and flexibility.

Hi, the three services you mentioned all have local desktop clients. If you connect your workflow to the correct file location, it can read/write to the cloud service. 

I understand that this is a workaround solution instead of native read/write but it's something you can consider.
