Error: Unable to resolve plugin Python 'XXXXX\' when running on Gallery


Environment Details

  • Alteryx Server
  • Executing a workflow or application containing one of the following tools:
    • Salesforce Input
    • PowerBI Input/Output
    • OneDrive Input/Output
    • Dynamics CRM Input/Output
    • BigQuery Input/Output
    • Azure Data Lake Input/Output

Error Details

The following error is seen when you try to execute a workflow or app on the Gallery, or scheduling a workflow on the Gallery.

"Error: Unable to resolve plugin Python 'XXXXX\' (Tool Id: X)"


Generally, this same workflow works fine when you run it locally in Designer.


When a user installs a .yxi tool, the tool is added to the tool palette in Alteryx Designer, and the .yxi file and supporting macros are installed in the User's directory. For server executions, this does not work and your Administrator will need to install a .yxi tool for all Server users in order for scheduled jobs and Gallery executions to work.


Install the .yxi for all Server users by following this Help article . For multi-node Servers, this will need to be done on all Worker nodes.
