writing a multiple tabbed excel file to cloud location

Highlighted

hello,

 I have written a workflow to create a multiple tabbed excel (.xlsx) file on one of my drives. However I need to write that file to a cloud location, is that possible to do with alteryx?

 

  • can a multi tabbed excel file be written directly through alteryx workflow to a cloud location?
  • if that is not possible, once it is created on a local drive, can that whole file be copied to a cloud location?

Please let me know.


Regards,

Bhavana

If your cloud service has a REST API you can use the Download Tool to write to the cloud service. If it doesn't, you can certainly write to your machine and then move it to your cloud service. Once the file leaves Alteryx the file will perform as normal.

Is there a way to identify whether the cloud service has the REST API?
