How to connect to SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) and extract data in Alteryx Designer.



  • Alteryx Designer
    • All versions
  • SSAS Connector
  • SSAS Analytical Data Engine
    • All versions



SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) is not natively supported in Alteryx Designer. There are 3rd party Alteryx Partners that have created SSAS connectors to bring in data from SSAS into Designer.


There is an existing Alteryx Idea to enhance Designer to support SSAS. Up-vote the idea for this enhancement to be considered in a future release of Alteryx Designer.
