I just had a meeting about Collibra. And there is a feature I would like to see on Alteryx connect : an addon to the browser of the user so that he can make a copy pasta from the dataviz application (https://marketplace.collibra.com/listings/desktop-app/ ). Very nice in demonstration and in real life.
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.
After loss of data on our client's Alteryx Connect instance, we started to think about regular automated backup of the Connect (or at least of the H2 database). It would be great if this was implemented in Connect (currently we have to do it manually) and we won't need to writte an extra script.
Thank you very much for consideration of this feature! Best Regards,
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...
