Are you developing this workflow locally or on the server?
If you are doing this locally you will need to check the following:
1) The server can see the folder. From first inspection it looks like you are pointing to a mapped drive 'F'. The server may use a different mapped value, so what you can do is replace the mapped value with the server name where that folder resides. This should be bale to give the alteryx server visability to it.
2) You may also need to check the 'Run As' user for the alteryx server has access to that folder aswell.
If you are devloping on the server you can check the following:
1) You may also need to check the 'Run As' user for the alteryx server has access to that folder aswell.
I am developing it locally and then upload it on gallery. I didn't test it directly on server.
I am able to take the Input from the server path F:\AR_analytics_box_sync\Box Sync\AR Analytics
But when I try to write the output it gave error of Cannot access the folder. It give error in designer itself before uploading it in the gallery. Output path is F:\AR_analytics_box_sync\Box Sync\AR Analytics\APP_Outputs\abc Report.xlsx
In the Input it says unable to find the file but in the output it says cannot access the folder. I don't think it is the error of map drive because we are able to get the input from same path. I think it is because of access permissions on the APP_Outputs\abc Report.xlsx am I correct or not.
Also pls let me know what is this "RUN AS" I don't understand it.
The 'Run As' account can be set up on the Alteryx Server. This relates to the credentials (Username/password) which the scheduled/workflows are ran under, meaning whatever credentials that Run As has, this will influence the permissions of the workflow.
If no 'Run As' has been set (This is an option, it can run as local service account), then I would check with your Alteryx server admin to check the permissions to the folder.
