API Output Tool

One Tool Example

API Output has a One Tool Example. Visit Sample Workflows to learn how to access this and many other examples directly in Alteryx Designer.

Use API Output to display the contents of a data stream in the Results window as a comma-delimited, quote-qualified string. No configuration is needed for the tool.

The first record that displays in the Results window contains the field names, and each additional record contains a row of data from the incoming data stream.

The API Output tool outputs a maximum of 255 characters per row, and the data from each field is contained within double-quotes. If a string value contains double-quotes, each quote is replaced by 2 consecutive quotes. Blob fields display the size of the blob, for example, "14 Bytes".
