Already put this to use, and feeding a Tableau dashboard. Same comment as Luke on this, and I just created the cmd line prior to module kick-off for obtaining the refresh. The "git pull" is a new methodology, so I thank you for highlighting another option for obtaining data from the web!!
@LukeM@klaus01 You can simplify the event process even further. Since the workflow should be placed in the same directory as the data, there's no need to have a batch file that changes to that directory - you're already there. In @LukeM's instructions, skip to step3 and in step 4, change the command to git with the command arguments set to pull.
You will only need the batch file if you have the workflow placed somewhere other than the data directory, in which case you would also need to modify several tool parameters to absolute file references, rather than relative references anyway.
Thanks to @nickbecks for notifying me that the data format changed on 23 March. I'm working on an updated version of the workflow that will handle the changes. JHU likes to keep us on our toes with their schema changes.
All the data Extract and the Alteryx Workflow worked perfectly, my only question is if anyone has worked with the Data? I have sliced it and built a TDE file to read in Tableau but for some reason the Confirmed cases around the globe are way higher that the numbers reported in the dashboard , Not sure if I am doing something wrong but for example US as of today is showing arond 53k confirmed cases vs the 120k confirmed cases that I am getting with the extracted data. I attached a Viz that uses a TDE generated through Alteryx. Any thougths?
