How does the request access work?

Hello everyone,

 

I have an easy question for connect users I think.

How does the request access work?

https://help.alteryx.com/20201/connect/use-assets

 

The recipient user will receive a email message with a link to authorize my access automatically or it is only a regular e-mail that I send and the recipient will need to log into connect and include me as an authorized user? or neither? 

 

Please help this noob haha

 

Best,

Fernando Vizcaino

Hi @fmvizcaino - it's actually neither. The 'Request Access' button is merely a trigger for Connect to send an email to the asset owner stating that the user is looking to gain access. This opens a dialogue off the platform.

 

Connect deliberately avoids workflows and/or mechanisms that automate the provisioning of data to users.
