Alteryx changes dependencies location to external even all are unchecked when publishing

5 - Atom

I am using Alteryx 2020.3.4, the same as server,.


When publishing we uncheck all dependencies to be taken from absolute paths. This approach is desired.

After publishing all dependencies are in _external.


However when we created a new test workflow with one of the dependencies moved to external in above example and do the same it was ok - taken from absolute path.


What can be the reason of this behavior?

Where are you unchecking them?  In the Manage Asset window when publishing?  Do you have a screenshot?

sure... Please find below the steps I took:


1) Precheck - before promotion:


(All paths are absolute - desired state)


2) Unchecked assets before publishing


3) Check after publishing:


All dependencies are external.


When I copy for instance Block_Until_Done to new workflow and publish for test with the same steps it works as I expected - path is preserved.



Thanks in advance

Yep, looks like you did everything correctly from what I can see.  I just tested it myself and I cannot replicate the behavior you're seeing.  This is probably a good case to submit to support (support@alteryx.com).

I am also encountering the same issue with one of my workflow when publishing it to the gallery. But for mine only 2 out of 20+ or so change to "external" after publishing to the gallery. I did the same steps as you when publishing to the gallery.


Did you get any resolution from Alteryx Support on this?


Thank you.

Did anyone get an explanation from Alteryx?
