Setting input and output repositories while running workflow in Gallery

Asteroid

Hi 

 

I am new to Alteryx Gallery.

My workflow contains a batch macro which will write to a location created through a formula tool for each of the input files (Based on Run date,input file name etc).

I can run this in my local.

But when i try to run in Gallery,instead of looking for the file in my local,the initial input file i set while saving in gallery (packaged with the save) is being referenced.

I there a way to make the workflow to run by reading a file from my local/shared path and write it to the location that the workflow is pointing to (local/shared path where the Directory is created through a macro).

 

Thanks

When running a workflow in the Gallery environment, you can use UNC path to reference shared network locations. You need to make sure these are accessible to the server (there's no firewall blocking communication between the two environments) and that the user used to execute the workflow on the server has permissions to access the files.

 

Hope that helps
