SOLVED Connect API from Alteryx Desginer

5 - Atom

Has anyone had success accessing the Connect API through designer?

and I have the login piece figured out, but have not gotten any further. I am fairly new to APIs and the connect documentation seems a bit sparse. 


For context, I am trying to retrieve the entry information for tables and columns on one of our SQL servers. We are storing the description information in another location, so I want to marry the info that has already been loaded with the descriptions and reload the updated entries. I've already figured out a way to do this manually (by downloading and excel file of the entry info then processing and reloading) but I would really like to automate the process.

Any help/insight is greatly appreciated.


Hi I have some working example for you.

Its may be not so beautiful as it can be, but it does the job.

I have in first part login, where I extract the authentication cookie, and with that I have some example to get field for some hardcoded entry_xid and also the update field.

but it should give you the missing point I guess.
