You might get the following error when running a workflow or schedule job on the Gallery after configuring a run-as user in Alteryx Server.
Internal error: tried to retrieve key container name before initializing encryption.
The reason why the workflow fails is that the run-as user or the service account does not have the right permissions set for %ProgramData%\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA\MachineKeys.
Please check and confirm that you have a run-as user configured in Alteryx System Settings.
The Windows Program Data folder contains content related to encryption keys used by Windows APIs.
Follow the instructions from the following documentations to configure the required run-as user permissions: https://help.alteryx.com/20213/server/configure-required-run-user-permissions
