@kuro,

 

Alteryx Connect is a meta data management system and was not built for storing data. Connect is meant for users to show and share what data is available for other to get access to use.

I understand.

Thank you for your reply.

※I think it's better that user can get data from Alteryx Connect in the future.
 Because after user know the data is exist, user want to use it.

This is what the "Use in workflow" button is for. You click that and you get a workflow with that data connection ready in an input tool.
