I am about to publish an app to a server that will create three files as outputs but one of those files could be created a large number of times. I have configured the one Output Data tool and two Render tools to point to a particular placeholder file that is already in place. Where the one file is to be created a large number of times, it will be suffixed by data within the data.
However, on testing it, the 'Finished' screen requires the user to individually download each file and no files are actually saved in the specified file locations.
Does anyone have any suggestions on why this is the case?
The full output path is E:\Alteryx Server\WorkflowData\Bespoke Pricing\Reconciliations\Reconciliation Outputs\Reconciliation - .xlsx with a variable appended to the filename.
You seem to be correct, it must be something to do with how I am uploading it as I had to make an adjustment and the outputs saved correctly once. However, i didn't realise this was the case until after a further adjustment had been made, and it no longer saves the outputs to the designated folder. Do you have any pointers on what I could check?
We are hosting the apps through a Virtual Machine and so I am unable to use a UNC as the source folder is local to the VM.
I am saving to the Gallery from the Desktop. If i uncheck each output as an asset, I receive errors (FileResourceHandler::EnsureBaseDirExists: Cannot create target directory...) but if i leave them as checked, each output path is altered with one example being '_externals\2\Reconciliation - .xlsx'.
I have used the UNC and there was no difference i.e. it still did output the files in the specified folder.
I am hopeful that the 'externals\2' may be a clue as i have read quite a few posts on this but am yet to find a solution. Do you have any thoughts?
