user/v2/inputfiles - workflow examples

Hey all, I'm looking to see if anyone has example analytic apps for using a file reference ID as described in Gallery API: Inputfiles Endpoint. As someone who is not very familiar with how these temporary files are stored on alteryx servers, anything would be helpful. I've tried a few variations and for each I receive a file not found error. 

 

Any example workflows, input or direction as to where to look is appreciated.

 

Thank you

I found this post which suggests changing the Action tool to update value instead of update input tool - https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Alteryx-Server-Discussions/The-Action-tool-reports-error-that-quot-...

 

Changing my app this changes the error message to:

So I feel like I'm getting a bit closer...

Solved my own problem. With the server update there is also a new v2 end point to execute a job

 

POST /user/v2/workflows/{appId}/jobs/

 

I was previously using v1/workflows/{appId}/jobs which meant that the right permissions were not being granted to see the file upload even with using the admin api key.

Does anyone have any examples of making this api request from an Alteryx workflow using the download tool? I can get it to work fine in Postman, but I want to trigger a new job on successful completion of a workflow in Designer, so need it to make the API call.
