2022.1.1.30569 Patch Release Update

The 2022.1.1.30569 Patch/Minor release has been removed from the Download Portal due to a missing signature in some of the included files. This causes the files to not be recognized as valid files provided by Alteryx and might trigger warning messages by some 3rd party programs. If you installed the 2022.1.1.30569 release, we recommend that you reinstall the patch.

Scripted Packaging of Workflow

Im trying to use Github actions to publish workflows to Alteryx server using the v3 API and see the workflows endpoint only accepts yxzp files. Is it possible to convert an Alteryx workflow into a yxzp without using the export function of Alteryx designer?

Yes, it is certainly possible. A yxzp is basically a specially-formatted ZIP file. Here are 2 threads which discuss it and have some example code:

Perfect thanks, it's the special formatting bit that I didn't know about and google foo failed
