Currently, it is only possible to map first name, last name and email via SAML. Would it be possible to enable mapping of aliases? The idea is, that we cannot map first name and last name with the Full Name field because they are not unique. At the moment, we are pushing email into both Full Name and Email fields, because emails are unique for us. In addition to this, it would be convenient if the Alias(es) field could be mapped via SAML as well. In this way, not only emails but also real names would be automatically present in Connect.
Change localization from the system level to the user level. This allows select interface language individually for each user.
Some of our potential customers - multi-cultural companies would like to have this flexibility.
Each workflow state has a very useful option: «Persistent» flag.
I understand how it works, but I would like to setup the system somehow to allow users to see public state by default.
My approach is simple. A lot of users visit Alteryx Connect for searching and reading. And I want to show them ‘public’ (official, approved) state of objects by default, not draft versions.
If the user would like to edit an asset, he/she can exit from public mode explicitly.
This would be a great improvement for Connect.
We spend hours on structuring the content within Alteryx Connect so that it serve all users.
We group schemas and databases into themes like "Sales", "Finance", "HR" and so on.
This makes it very easy for users to find what data we have available.
The same we do for workflows, macros and other content.
The problem is that our metadata loaders run every day to make sure our data is up-to-date.
Each run resets custom grouping. Making organizing content totally pointless.
Please vote for this idea
Certified objects should appear in the top of any search.
Today it has no effect on the search if a object is certified. Certified objects should be boosted in the search.
In the administration console, Connect configuration, search boost it should be possible to ad weight to certified objects
We are new to Alteryx and we could see that the Supported Data Sources from IBM are of below :
How about adding IBM Sterling to this?
We want Alteryx to support connection with IBM Sterling OMS which will help the Business requirements
Can anyone post some suggestions on this? How we can connect to Sterling?
If you remove the configuration of the SMTP server while you are in development, (the current solution to spamming users with notifications during the setup period of the data catalog) then put the SMTP server configuration back in when you are finished setup, all the changes that have happened in the interim will not be sent as a bulk send. This a risk when an email server is unavailable for a period of time that notifications for changes/comments/tasks will be missed.
Once the ability to switch notifications on and off is implemented, I think it would be worth reviewing how feasible this is.
The email notifications that are received are not easily marked or flagged/prefixed as coming from Alteryx. I expect that this may be on purpose so that data owners can't "hide" from changes/comments on their areas of expertise, but from a time management point of view, it would be good to be able to flag them in some way so that a rule can be run on them in the users inbox, and they can batch up their reviews/answers.
Connect currently provides lineage for a datasource at the table level but we would like to be able to have this at a more granular level i.e. the column level so if a specific column changes in the table (e.g. data type change), we are notified of the change and able to identify quickly assets that will be affected.
for the past 8 months I have been using alteryx and mostly working with the connect in db components , there are many issues which I am facing and i this this can be improved
1. there is no such flexibility of creating a table with the keys defined which is the most important pillar in database, also the options provided are limited , i.e. to create a new table , delete and append, drop table and recreate,
now, there are many times where in we need to update the tables based on the keys, which i find missing. Also how the option is defined is create a new table, next time if the job is run it states that the table is already created, for which we need to manually change the option in the next run.
2.which switching between in db and alteryx , if the records are more the alteryx lags completely and the job keeps running for hours , how can we achieve the flexibility of alteryx designer if there is such bottleneck.
3.the flexibility that is provided with alteryx designer should also be given to in db components.
4.the parameters defined in the workflow can not be accessed in the in db formula tools but can be used in the designer formula tools. this reduces the flexibility.
please look into the same
When Alteryx connect is first installed to a company with a small alteryx designer base, you do not benefit from lineage.
There are not much workflows at hand. So in order to realize Alteryx connect's immediate benefits I'd like to suggest;
a company-wide Data Quality Score.
And as soon as we install connect we'll have a grand vision of our data and even we'll be able to track the status of our whole distributed data assets with a trend line if we are going better or worse... Here is an example;
Connect applies a standard set of weightings to different categories of information (people, terms etc.) when returning search results. When combined with likes/dislikes, these determine the order in which results are returned - details below:
Alteryx Connect uses the following scoring parameters for the Lucene engine:
It would be useful to have control over this weighting, e.g. when you have large numbers of Person records being returned before Terms; but advice from Customer Support has been that these are not currently customisable. I'd like to request that this ability be considered for inclusion in a future release of Connect.
