I have a workflow which points to a particular input file that is periodically updated. It would seem logical that if the file is to be updated often, it would be best not to include it as an Asset. However, does anyone know how to have an App within the Gallery pick up a file using a preset file path as it would do in Designer?
Apologies if this is a basic question but searches and attempts have yielded no results so far.
Thanks Erica. I think that has solved the problem but it looks as if there could be a problem with our server setup. When pointing the workflow at a UNC of a specific file, it acknowledges the file but returns "Access Denied". So, we are a step forward from the "File not found" that was the previous problem.
By default, Alteryx runs as a service account, which may not have access to the shared drive.
You can have your server admin go to the Alteryx System Settings and enable "Run As a different user." I suggest making this a service account that has access to the necessary folders, but you can also use your credentials as well.
