I have created a workflow to test whether a .txt file exists in a folder and based on that if the exists then I want to trigger another workflow.
I have added other workflow in the Event after run without error.But when I try to execute it says Designer x64 The Designer x64 reported: Error running Event #1: The external program "C:\Program Files\Alteryx\bin\AlteryxEngineCmd.exe" returned an error code: 2: The system could not find the environment option that was entered. ¶ (203)
My alteryx designer license is not enabled with API and scheduler feature. Please check the attached item.
Is there any tool I can use to chain the workflows without events?
I have attached the screen shot of the first marco which checks for a file.
This article isn't much help if you're trying to work with workflows published to a server. The Runner tool is not compatible with with the scheduler:
" Using Runner Macros on an Alteryx Server or Gallery can risk over-utilization of resources and cause instability in an Alteryx Server or Gallery environment and thus Runner Macros are not supported on Alteryx Server. There are other options that will allow you to use the workflow on the Gallery or Scheduler."
In the Run Command Event, you need to specific a file path which is not possible with a workflow on the server.
The interface tool has a default timeout of 30 seconds so if workflow 1 takes any longer then 30 seconds then this options doesn't work well either (default time out can be changed but has to be done by server admin).
So far i haven't found any good solution to this problem.
