One Tool Example
Control Parameter has a One Tool Example. Visit Sample Workflows to learn how to access this and many other examples directly in Alteryx Designer.
A Control Parameter is the input for each iteration of a Batch Macro. The Control Parameter input appears as an upside-down question mark icon below its input arrow on the macro tool icon. For each record coming into the Control Parameter input, the entire macro is reconfigured and run from beginning to end.
The Control Parameter must have an Action tool associated with it, like Update Value, Update Input, or Update Output Actions.
