Importing tags from Alteryx Gallery to Alteryx Connect

Claire-Gillis

Hi -

 

My client has spent a great deal of time creating "tags" in Alteryx Gallery, but to my knowledge, these tags do not import into Alteryx Connect via the Metadata Loader. I also do not see this information contained anywhere in the API call. Is there a way to load these tags from their Gallery into Alteryx Connect?

 

Best,

Claire

Hi @Claire-Gillis -  the best approach would be to tweak the existing Alteryx metadata loader to capture the tag data from Gallery's MongoDB:

There's a section of 'tags':

  • _id: (ObjectId) Document primary key.
  • Name: (String) Tag display name.
  • Description: (String) Tag description.

...then have it load those tags into the 'Tag' field in Analytic Workflows within Connect.
