Error creating the file “C:\ProgramData\Alteryx\Tools\PublishToTableauServer\TableauServer.Selection.ServerSite.yxdb”:Access is denied.
When scheduling a workflow with a Publish To Tableau Server tool, there is an access denied error. The error does not occur when manually running the workflow.
When Designer processes a Publish To Tableau Server tool, the tool’s macro generates a file with site selection information to complete the connection. If the workflow is scheduled with Desktop Automation, the Alteryx Service needs to write this file and it does not have permission.
Change the Alteryx Service log on account from the default of the Local System account to your Windows Active Directory account.
Go to the Windows Search Bar, type in Services, and then in the Services screen, right-click on the Alteryx Service, and select Properties.
Next, on the Log On tab, change the account to your Windows Active Directory account.
