Submission Guidelines

Enable clearing In-DB connection history

See this community link for context:

https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Alteryx-Designer-Knowledge-Base/There-is-no-option-to-clear-the-In-...

 

tl;dr: 

An option to clear the In-DB File History is not available in the Designer's GUI. If this feature is required, it's recommended to open an Idea on the Alteryx Community to submit an enhancement request.

 

Please implement this as an idea; I need to clear some In-DB connections that are no longer valid and in a managed environment, accessing the registry is laughable.

 

Thank you!

hi @ssjl, your idea and feedback are appreciated! Our product team is constantly striving to make our products better, and the user feedback we received is critical in that mission. We recommend checking out our Submission Guidelines as they go into greater depth on the criteria needed for an idea to reach product as well as give information about the boards in general.

Thank you. I recommend Alteryx place such guidelines a little more prominently on the New Idea page. See below for a screenshot that fails to show any link to the guidelines you provided above. Please also notice that the text placement to the side makes it far too easy to overlook. The most problematic thing about this process is the burden your process places on someone with an idea. I have neither the time nor inclination to revisit this to make a use case for that which should be obvious to the product team.

hi @ssjl, it's unfortunate that you feel this process is a burden; we want to make it as smooth as possible for our customers with ideas. If you have further suggestions on how make the process less burdensome, please submit to our Community Ideas forum. And for your reference going forward, the Submission Guidelines link is featured at the top of each page in this section. Thanks again for your feedback!
