2021.1 Upgrade removed custom Miniconda virtual envs

5 - Atom

I recently upgraded from 2020.4 to 2021.1.


I had a few virtual environments set up using the Miniconda installation inside the /Alteryx/bin/Miniconda3 folder. I use them for developing some custom tools with the Python API. When I upgraded, all the packages were removed, and I had to recreate these environments. Luckily I had saved requirements.txt files to easily restore them with pip.


Should I just expect this whenever I upgrade the Alteryx version? Is there is some for the installer to need to upgrade packages in the base conda environment during upgrades?

To answer my own question, when upgrading Alteryx it will completely reinstall the Miniconda installation and overwrite all virtual environments.
