Diagnosis

Three Alteryx Behavior Analysis Report tools were not installed with the Experian 2016B Dataset in the 2016 Q3 CAPE Data US Release. 

Solution

Action required: Please follow the directions to either option A or B depending if the data is already installed.  Overwrite an existing file on the install media then install as instructed.

 

Overwrite an existing file on the install media then install as instructed

 

Both options require overwriting a file on the 2016 Q3 Data US Release hard drive or to the location of the original install software.  If not available, contact fulfillment@alteryx.com for a replacement drive.

 

  • Download and unzip the file titled BA_fix.7z available in this post to a location of your choice. It contains the updated file ALTERYX_US_Experian_2016B_16A.ini
  • Locate the 2016 Q3 install hard drive, or software install, and browse to the folder \2016 Q3 Data US Release\Experian_2016B_Data
  • Locate the downloaded ALTERYX_US_Experian_2016B_16A.ini file and copy/paste to overwrite the existing file in the install folder: \2016 Q3 Data US Release\Experian_2016B_Data

Option A: Experian 2016B dataset has been installed

 

  • On the install media, navigate to the folder \2016 Q3 Data US Release and double click the DataInstall.exe file.
  • The Welcome Screen displays the data sets included on the installation media. Click Next to proceed with data installation.
  • The Install Screen displays data sets on the installation Media. Select the data sets to install. Click Next to proceed with data installation.
  • The Uninstall Screen displays data sets already installed on the machine. Uninstall the previously installed version by checking the box next to Experian 2016B Data (Q3 2016 Release) and Experian Simmons 2016 Data (Q3 2016 Release). Ignore the Replace option. Click Next to proceed with data installation.
  • Install as per usual.

 

Option B: Experian 2016B dataset has not been installed

 

  • Once ALTERYX_US_Experian_2016B_16A.ini is overwritten, install as per usual. How do you know if you need this fix before the next update? If existing workflows include the Behavior Analysis Tools Report: Rank, Report: Comparison or Report: Detail, apply this fix. These three report tools are also referenced in these Behavior Analysis Sample Workflows: Customer Profiles, Geographic Profiles, Customer Profiles with Penetration, Product Profile, Product Potential Report, and Rank Product for a Geo. The fix will be necessary if those samples are accessed.

How do I know the fix is applied correctly? Launch Alteryx and verify the highlighted tools are available in the Behavior Analysis group.
