I have two workflows Workflow A and Workflow B in the same Alteryx Sandbox, Same Studio. Is there a way to Trigger the workflow B after the successful run of Workflow A?

Yes you can, these are called chained apps.

 

what you need to do is Open both the apps in designer,

then in the App A, go to interface designer view> settings > on successful run, run another analytical app. 
Add your app B in this.

 

save the workflow back to the gallery, and your chained app is ready with app B running post app A.

 

please note that you don’t need to publish app B separately now, since it becomes an asset for App A.

 

Please mark this as a solution if this answers your query.

I applied this and ran the workflow A from sandbox, Only A completed, B didn't executed.

 

Is both workflow needs to be in same file type? like .yxwz in my case one is .yxmd and other is .yxwz will it work?

Yes both needs to be .yxmz

you can convert your .yxmd into a .yxmz and connect as a chained app.

For this you would just need a dummy interface tool with some default value. This would not impact your workflow and you’d be able to trigger this .yxmz with first App.
