Alias Manager - Setting up a consistent DSN

Alteryx Alumni (Retired)

Hi,

 

Created the attached document to help guide in using the alias manager to set up consistent DSN's. Setting up consistent DSN's via the alias manager will allow workflows with database connections to work across different user's computers as well as on alteryx server. It allows alteryx to recognize to use the working machine's DSN and credentials.

 

Best,

This is a good suggestion that my team tries to follow in order to facilitate easier sharing of workflows.

Do the connections need to be made in each designer and on the server?  Or can they be made on the server and then the designers can select the Alias they would like to use.  I have set them up in the designer but others cannot see them to use.

 

thanks!
