Nested batch macro Error with HTML GUI SDK


Hey all,


Hoping someone can help me out. I have a macro that allows a user to decide what files they want to bring back from an Amazon S3 bucket without needing to write any command line code. I have developed one tool using the same process that just gets information back from the bucket on objects contained within the bucket. My next step was to allow a user to decide what files they wanted. I decided to start with some base options:

1) Most recently published file

2) Most recent file (by date in object name)

3) Specific Object - they can input which one with a text box

4) Most recently published X files - they can decide how many


I have my tool fully done, but I keep getting the following warnings and error when I try to use the tool:

If anyone knows how to remove these warnings or remove the error (Tool #115 is my nested batch macro) that would be greatly appreciated!


Hey @cplewis90


Can you please upload your workflow and some sample data?

This will help to check whats going on with the macro and the workflow!

Here are the updated attachments for the macros. The "S3_download_tool_update.yxmc" is the batch macro that is causing me issues with the above HTML GUI code.
