I am trying to understand how do I use the Server local drive folders (such as C:\Alteryx\Data\Files) to read flat files as input and also write the outputs - all this after publishing the workflow to the Gallery. I tried doing it but often get file not found error.
I will re-attempt this today trying some different method but wanted to know if anybody here has been able to do that. Please let me know if I need to elaborate more on this.
Thank you very much for your suggestions. I made the changes as mentioned in the article and tried saving the workflow again - only to get this error now. Any ideas how do I fix it?
1) I am using the Designer present on the Server to build and publish the workflow. No local desktop Alteryx Designer involved.
2) I had tried changing the "Run As" feature in the Settings - entered the Server credentials at the place. This had fixed this problem but I can't use it since Server credentials (password) is dynamic - it changes everyday.
If you are on the Server machine itself, then setting the Run As is the way to go. Since your password changes everyday, I would recommend working with your IT department to create a domain account specifically for Alteryx that you can set as the Run As; as long as it has the necessary permissions to the folders, this should solve your problem
