Trigger alteryx server workflow from power automate

Hello,

 

For a specific business need, i need to trigger an alteryx workflow that is in my gallery on alteryx server from power automate,

it will be so useful for what my company is trying to acheive, and i know there isn't actually an alteryx connector in power automate, but i read somewhere that it was possible to acheive this by using api post request in power automate, but i didn't find any clear documentation on how i can realise that, ( how to execute an alteryx server job via the power automate api call url)

 

has anybody tried it before? or does anybody have an idea on the steps to acheive that ?

 

Thank you so much for your help in advance,

Best regards

I would be curious to know how this could work as well.

Yes, this is possible if you use batch (.bat) scripts.

 

Create a .bat file using notepad like the following. First set of "" is the location of the alteryx .exe file, the second "" is the fully qualified path of the Alteryx workflow.

Now in Power Automate, choose 'Run Application' and select your .bat file in the top box

Save

This will run that Alteryx script when you trigger it. Note that you will get a black DOS box when it runs. If there is a way to make it run silently, I've not found it.
