Custom Alteryx Tools

So far I’ve written four Alteryx tools based on the Alteryx Python SDK.

You can install by downloading the yxi file under the releases tab in GitHub and simply double click to install. The tools will be available in the Alteryx Tool menus and function just like the built-in tools that ship with Alteryx.

File Copy and Move

Copies or moves files from source to destination. If the destination is a path the filenames will be unchanged, otherwise it will use the provided filename.

Compressed File Extractor

Takes the incoming mapped file path and extracts the contained files into the supplied location. By default it will not overwrite existing files but this can be changed in the tools configuration.
