Parallel Batch Macro

For performance, it would be great if designers could mark Batch Macros safe for parallel execution. E.g. the macro will not dead-lock itself accessing inputs / outputs. 


Either Alteryx would run all iterations simultaneously, or to what available resources permit.


My use case here is a rule table (DMN) which execution against a data set, each rule needs to be executed against each row. The rules are expressed as formulas and are joined through the Dynamic Replace tool.


However we need to check whether inputs match multiple rules these may violate the matching process, so I run each rule through the batch macro to find matches. Once all matches are processed then validation on the matching occurs.


The input could be 30k rows, and there are about 80 rules which my Alteryx takes about five minutes to execute.

hi @braggis thank you for your feedback! This visibility into how users would like batch macros to behave helps our product team with future planning and understanding users' needs more directly.
