Upload Parquet to HDFS

7 - Meteor

I know from other peoples posts on here that Alteryx doesn't natively support outputting columnar data such as parquet files. I was wondering if anybody has created a workaround for this for uploading to hdfs. We're using Alteryx v11.7, so ideally a solution which uses the capabilities of this version but I'm also interested in the best method going forward as we update Alteryx. Are there any clever shenanigans which can be done using the run command tool?

Thanks for your help!
