Python SDK importing custom modules

I have an custom tool whose Engine.py file depends on several other python files. Just to avoid clutter in the main one.

I have placed the other modules in same directory as Engine.py but when running the tool in alteryx I get the import Error.

How do I resolve this?

Check out the code behind the latest Salesforce Input tool, available for download here. It accomplishes what you're trying to do.

So it was all about creating a virtual environment. It worked perfectly thanks.

Hello Guys,

 

Could you elaborate a bit how the Salesforce tool works exactly when it comes to importing custom modules?

 

Thanks
