Allow full management of chained workflows using the API

Hello everyone,


I created before a post about managing chained workflows using the API.
After reaching out the support, it turns out to be impossible, which is unfortunate.


So I post this idea here, in case anyone is needing it too.

Feels free to ask me details if needed.

I'm struggling with the same issue. I'm able to kick off the first of my chained apps, and I'm even able to get the job ID and output IDs of the first app. However, I have no idea how to run the second part of the chained app as it has no app ID and no way for me to get questions or generate an endpoint to execute.

Hi Everyone, I need to elaborate a WF  (interactive macro) to find a job status in alteryx server then if status = completed and disposition = sucess, exit from this macro and follow to the next step, or if status is equal none or erro, I would like to wait a tiny time and get new status in a few minutes.


In my WF it overflows the configured interactions limit, I'm waiting approximately 30s to make a new request.
