Would you consider creating a metadata loader for SharePoint? A lot of companies that we are working with have a lot of data stored in SharePoint and they would like to catalog their metadata.
I am aware that it is possible to use the Files Loader when the SharePoint drive is mapped as a mapped drive in Windows Explorer, but the mapping and subsequent scheduling is very problematic, also because of security policies in large enterprises.
Having a SharePoint dedicated loader would be a great benefit.
currently, when running loaders from the Administration Console - Connections pane, there is no information about the status of the load. Would it be possible to include information such as success/fail message, run length, completion time or next scheduled run time?
This would much simplify monitoring of the scheduled loads and managing the schedule.
We are moving our measure specifications that are in a PDF format to the Connect glossary. We would like to keep the formatting that exists in the PDF when copying the spec. However, the format doesn't always copy over. It would be nice to have the 'Format Painter' option similar to what is in MS Word where you can copy the format from one line to another line.
It would be great if it was possible to install/upgrade and configure Alteryx Connect using scripts. This would enable us to deploy Alteryx Connect using script deployment tools such as Urbancode Deploy. This functionality was recently requested by one of our customers, who has most of their application installations/upgrades automated this way.
Would you consider creating a metadata loader for Databricks? I can imagine this being a part of the Analytical workflows section and be catalogued in a similar way like Alteryx workflows. On a number of clients, we are seeing Databricks jobs being used as a complement to Alteryx workflows and a possibility to have them both catalogued in Alteryx Connect would be of great benefit.
When I add descriptions to tables or columns in Connect then use that asset in a workflow, I would like to see the same table and column descriptions within the metadata in Designer. To illustrate, I've shared some screenshots...
