Hi Alteryx team,

 

Would it be possible to implement an overview table with a complete history of metadata loads? I can imagine there could be a table in the administration console (in Jobs) where you could see the history and number of runs for each source system so that it can be referred to at any time when you need to know the frequency and past runs?

 

Thank you

Michal

Hi Alteryx,


We have noticed that the sequence of objects in the Nexus diagram is not unified for different modes. For example, for user defined references the sequence in the „Joins“ mode is different from the lineage displayed in „All“ mode. The same stands for lineage, the arrows are often pointing in the opposite direction than in the “All” mode.


Would it be possible to unify the sequences of objects in the Nexus view?


I understand that the “All” mode just lists all relations without the actual sequence, but this is quite confusing for the users and it may be more intuitive if the arrows always pointed the same way.


Alternatively, would it make sense to have the arrows on both sides for user defined references?


Thank you.

Hi Alteryx team,

 

apart from the current known issue of format of email notifications (which in some cases shows a code instead of a proper notification), can you work further to improve the visual of the email notifications?

 

Currently, the notifications do not contain any indication (information) that it is coming from Alteryx Connect so very frequently, it is even captured by the spam filters or users have no idea what they are receiving.

 

The expectation would be to include perhaps the Alteryx Connect logo, perhaps name of the instance or some other details, possibly even customizable by the administrator (to some extent only, obviously).

 

Thank you

Michal

According to the current product functions,

permission management after data search by Connect is not possible.

 

We request the following functions.

-Added "Approve / Reject" function when Request Access.

-Added a function to set a fixed email address with Cc when Request Access.

 

Connect has the ability to visually see 1 level of dependancy (in the Nexus view).

 

For an asset owner - it is very important to be able to see ALL upstream / downstream dependancies to be able to understand impact.   Key here is answering the question "who will be impacted if I change XX"

 

This should include asset; owner; and depth - preferrably in a tree format.

Connect offers functionality for users to chat about data & analytical assets.

However - in order to meet regulatory obligations in a regulated Financial Services company - this communication needs to be surveiled by compliance.

 

Please could  you provide an API for this data to be monitored by compliance teams in near-real-time?

In order to ensure that assets are managed through the process from discovery through correct tagging - a configurable workflow is required to ensure that this process can be managed.

 

  •  Asset Owners
    • When an asset is discovered – first step is to associate an owner.
      • If the database already has an owner, and this is a new table – default to the DB owner.   For Tableau or Alteryx assets you can see the owner from the canvas.    If no owner is obvious - this then goes to an Admin to assign an owner
      • Owner can re-assign
      • Needs to be two owners for every asset
    • Once the owner is confirmed – meta-data needs to be captured
    • Then this needs to be checked against standard taxonomy
    • Then this description is pushed out
    • Admin team need to be able to spot and manage items which are not yet correctly captured or described

Wouldn't it be great if Alteryx Connect can show badges earned in a user profile like how you have it in the Alteryx community? It would give people more incentive to contribute their knowledge and engage in the tool. This also give visibility to the leaders. 

 

It would be great if there is a way to highlight all the certifications ( ex. Alteryx, Tableau...etc.) that our users earned in their profile. This will help promote data literacy in our community and help users connect to the experts. 

Our department has a site that manages request access to database, application...etc. The user will have better experience with the tool when they can click on the request access button and it directs them to the form that we use.
