Hi Alteryx,

 

Would it be possible to implement a toggle for switching between business and technical names of metadata objects? We have both business people as well as technical IT people using Connect. While technical people are interested to see the original names of tables, views, schemas etc. from the sources, the business would like to see some names they can more relate too. 

 

We are using the alternate names, which works well, however we are missing a toggle, in which each user can define what he wants to see.

 

Thank you

Hi,

 

Are you considering building a standard SAP BW loader for Alteryx Connect. I am concious there are some custom solutions available on the market (like DVW loader), but that is not standard and does not allow data lineage with other systems?

 

Thank you

Michal

We can tag all objects but when we want to find all the objects with a specific tag that is not possible.

 

In the advanced search it should be possible to search for all objects. with a specific tag.

 

The tag should be a part to the search boost.

 

Example. I have 10 tables that I tag "Finance". When users search for finance the tables should appear even though finance is not a part of the table name, column names or description

Would be good to create an Alteryx Connect plugin for Tableau so that you can access Connect from Tableau?  Would improve user experience if the user can access the information catalog without leaving their BI tool.  So for example, have an Alteryx Connect sidebar in Tableau to allow you to search for a table or file then click and add as a data source and immediately start data discovery/analysis.
 
 

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.

Hello, for me it would be great if the Connect did not compile all the scripts after saving a single config file as its compicating me work with config files.

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.

Hello All,

 

We are new to Alteryx and we could see that the Supported Data Sources from IBM are of below :

  • IBM DB2
  • IBM Netezza/Pure Data Systems
  • IBM SPSS

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?

 

Thanks,

Praveen C

 

Dean has inspired me to want Voice Activated Alteryx Connect so while I'm having my coffee in the morning I can have Alterexa explain the new data sources that were curated yesterday! Please make this happen!

Our client is considering introducing Alteryx Connect.


They are considering sharing metadata to thousands of users.
So it is not realistic for administrators to create accounts one by one.
Therefore, we want the function to import user lists.


Initially we considered connection with AD,
However, we could not be used because users and server of Alteryx Connect belong to different domains.


Therefore, we want the ability to import user lists.
Or, we want an extension to import account information in AD into Alteryx Connect.
