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?
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
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?
