Hi all,

 

How do I open the file (answer_file_analytic_app_development_for_intermediate_users.yxwz) at the following link to follow along the recorded class?

Thanks,

Hi Teruo,

 

Open it directly in Designer by going to File > Open Workflow > Browse, or by dragging the yxwz file from Windows Explorer directly onto the canvas.

 

Double-clicking the file will open the analytic app's GUI that allows end users to enter their own inputs.

 

Thanks,

Hi RithiS,

 

Thanks a lot for sharing the solution.

After I run the workflow, I saw this error message. Does that mean that I don't have the input data?

I thought it would be like yxzb file and we will have the data, but I guess it does not work that way, correct?

In that case, if we want to share the analytic APP, we should ensure that the end user would have the data, correct?

Thanks again,

That's right. Fortunately the sample data is installed with Designer. In 2019.4 it can be found in:

  • %localappdata%\Alteryx\Samples\en\SampleData (NonAdmin - paste this path into Windows Explorer)
  • C:\Program Files\Alteryx\Samples\en\SampleData (Admin)

If you want to share this analytic app with the data source, first find the correct file path for the yxdb file and configure the Input Data so it's loading the data.

 

Then go to Options > Export Workflow and ensure that you have the yxdb checked as an asset. It will create a yxzp file that can be shared with others. I have attached the analytic app with the data source included.
