AWS Roles

Hi,

 

Is it possible to grant AWS resources (ie: S3, Redshift) via IAM roles within Alteryx Designer? I know that the connectors accepts AWS keys/ secret, however, this is NOT a secure wy of providing access.

 

Thanks

Ben

Hi @BenBernardo,

 

At this time our Amazon connections do not offer the ability to log in with or grant resources using IAM within Alteryx Designer.

 

The use of IAM has reviously been submitted to our Ideas page on the Community.  I would encourage you to submit your use case on the mentioned post for adding this functionality and staring it. Our developers look to the Ideas page to see what users are asking for and suggestions for Alteryx.  Be sure to share the link wit your colleagues so they may star the post and and their use cases, thoughts, or suggestions as well.

Hi @BenBernardo,

 

I am not aware of a timeline, I would suggest checking the post mentioned above from time to time to see if our developers have added any comments to it.  I would also suggest discussing this with your Account Executive as they would be able to check with the Product Managers about any road map details.

 

Thanks,

Peter

Trying to understand how this is marked as solved?  The idea seems like it is under review which I interpret as you still can't use IAM roles.
