Hey Alex, I couldn't find a bug tracker to submit this to, but after a bit of searching, this post seems like the most appropriate place for me to bring a bug with the GA tool to your attention. The bug was that running the GA tool in "Update Mode" to pull down profile/view IDs would irreversibly break the Alteryx GA tool for the installation of Alteryx. Root cause was that a runtime xml config used by the tool got invalid characters written to an attribute, breaking the metrics section of the tool config and rendering it unusable until the config was fixed by hand.
Properly configured GA tool, pulls view data by ID just fineRunning in "Update Mode" works, but...Tool is now irreversibly broken with an XML error in its 'Metrics' sectionConfig at fault with filename at top and invalid character in pink
Manually editing the file to escape the angle braces with "<" and ">" fixes this, but I still have to rely on manually adding View IDs to use it. This is in Alteryx version 10.6 x64 in case you guys want to go regression hunting. Dunno where that <NAME> attribute gets pulled from (I assume a poorly named metric on our GA account), but your devs should validate XML before writing it to disk, and remember to escape characters. Cheers.
