I've recently installed Alteryx Server and am testing an App. When using Temporary PDF Document as the Render Output Mode I receive "This workflow produced no output" in the Gallery. However a PDF is created when I specify a PDF output file & path. What could be preventing the Temporary PDF from being output? Thank you.
This was a change made in Alteryx 10.1 because Usage of %temp%, or writing to any location that is considered “temporary” (ex. temporary report output files) when building workflows for execution in a server/gallery is not a recommended practice, and will indeed fail and cause odd behavior.
As a result you will have to choose a location to output the PDF.
I am experiencing a similar situation . I get what you explained however i would like to deploy the App for the end user so that they can run it "At-Will" and download the specific data. Is there a way to achieve the same through gallery? Thank You.
In the render tool, you would have to select the last option about writing to a specific location. Then you could provide just a filename (file.pdf for example) or write to the workflow directory using a reference shortcut (%engine.workflowdirectory%file.pdf). Both of these would write to the workflow directory, which would allow the end user to download the file from the gallery.
