âShow Table of Contents
The Configuration window displays the configuration options for a selected tool, connection, or a workflow.
Use the Configuration window to configure tool, connection, or workflow settings. Configuration options vary depending on your selection.
The Canvas tab lists options that control how tools and information display on the workflow canvas.
The Workflow tab contains information about a workflow file. File information displays for a workflow you have saved and are actively working on. If the workflow has not been saved, some of the information will be blank.
Workflow Path: Displays the file location of the selected workflow.
Workflow Type: Displays the type of workflow that is open.
When a workflow is saved as an app or macro, each tool in the workflow gets a anchor. Only tools in the Interface category can be connected to the anchor. The anchor indicates interface elements and actions are updating a tool in a workflow.
Analytic app and macro properties, layout and testing can be set in the Interface Designer, View > Interface Designer. See Interface Designer Window.
Constants: Constants are global variables for a workflow that make it possible to change a value in a single location and have that change apply to the rest of the workflow. See Constants.
The Runtime tab includes settings that apply when the workflow is run. This tab is not available for macros.
For more information on how Alteryx uses memory, see Memory Use.
This setting applies to macros that generate outputs; however, the macros will not appear disabled in the canvas.
The Events tab contains options for configuring email notifications or run commands for specific events that occur when a workflow is run. This tab is not available for batch, iterative, and location optimizer macros.
Enable Events Checkbox: Select to enable events to trigger an email or run command.
If the SMTP server uses a port other than the default, 25, then a colon and the port number should be appended to the server name.
The Meta Info tab lists details about a workflow. You can add information that saves when you save the workflow.
To access older versions of a macro tool, drag the tool to the canvas and right-click it.
By default, the XML tab does not display. To enable the table, go to Options > User Settings > Edit User Settings, and, on the Advanced tab, select Display XML in the Configuration Window.
The XML View tab displays the code that makes up the workflow. Use the information to troubleshoot and to understand how a workflow works.
