Chained apps and Access denied error

11 - Bolide

OK Alteryx gurus, this one's got me flummoxed.

 

I can create a two apps and chain them, test1.yxwz and test2.yxwz.  The former writes data to %temp%..\test1_output.yxdb and the latter reads from it.

 

When I publish to my Private Studio in our Gallery, it runs fine and if I share it to the Public Gallery a coworker can run it.

 

When the same coworker publishes the same thing to her Private Studio it fails at file output time:
Error creating file "filepath_was_here_but_I_removed_it\test1_output.yxdb ":Access is denied.

 

I am in the Administrators group on the server and she is not.  I am a Curator of the Gallery and she is an Artisan.

 

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

David

Hi @David-Carnes,

 

Do you have a Run As or Service Account configured on your Alteryx Server? See this article explaining Workflow Credentials on Gallery: https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Alteryx-Server-Knowledge-Base/How-Workflow-Credentials-Work-on-a-Pr...

 

If the workflow is running as your Colleague's user account then her account will need Write permissions to the directory the workflow is writing to. See this article: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/324067/how-to-set-folder-security-for-shared-folders
