2022.1.1.30569 Patch Release Update

The 2022.1.1.30569 Patch/Minor release has been removed from the Download Portal due to a missing signature in some of the included files. This causes the files to not be recognized as valid files provided by Alteryx and might trigger warning messages by some 3rd party programs. If you installed the 2022.1.1.30569 release, we recommend that you reinstall the patch.

To classify data sources by folder

If files/tables with the same name are registered, it is impossible to identify on the data sources list.
Our client would like a feature that to classify data sources by folder as like "All Schemas, Tables and Views".

Hi @Suzu ,

 

I am not sure that I follow. Could you please provide more details? E.g. what is the purpose and what the user experience should be? Especially I am not sure what does "to classify data sources by folder" mean.

Hi @VojtechT ,

 

Thank you for your reply. 

The client said "if files/tables with the same name are registered, it is impossible to identify on the data sources list". He would like to classify files/tables as identify them easy.

Hi @VojtechT ,

 

@Suzu have similar use cases.  If we are working on a project we may want to know what additional assets are related to a particular folder, as that folder may be an entire project.  This would help provide context around seemingly unrelated data sources or sources/outputs that have not been connected yet.  Having this searchable would also help with batch created files where the only difference is the file suffix.  Using the path as metadata I could now attach the pertinent information to the path instead of each file.
