Error while running .bat file on Alteryx server

8 - Asteroid

Hi all,


I am trying to trigger an event using .bat file in alteryx workflow. 

It works fine on desktop.

But while running on gallery , its throwing an error


" The external program "_externals\1\abc.bat" returned an Error code 1'


Any help?

I believe for security reasons, Alteryx won't let you run bat files (or anything using Windows Run command) from the server.

Any solution to it?  Is there any way i can resolve it? I have to use .bat file
