Alteryx Azure Data Lake tools not installing

5 - Atom

I just downloaded the Azure Data Lake tools from!app/Azure-Data-Lake-Tools/5b1fffbd8a93371030bcfedc

and the installation should be straightforward with just clicking the azure_data_lake_v1.0.0.yxi file but i get no error but it just says it is installing, when i click the ok button it just starts the installation over again.


Please help me on how to do this!

How did you resolve this - I am having problems installing this. 


As user it say s

downloads python package

says it found PIP-9.0.1

uninstalls this 

Installing python dependencies

Fails with An error occured during installation of the python tool. Exception: 


I think this is for the input tool. I then get a repeat as it tries to install the output tool.


Any help appreciated

Hi All


I have the same issue. What's the resolution for this?

I tried downloading


  1. Download the ADLS tool

and then there was nothing to "execute" once I got the files locally (folder was 'azure_data_lake_v1.0.2'). Directions on this are terrible.


I tried doing it from the gallery....


  1. Log into the Alteryx Gallery
    1. File>Open Workflow>Alteryx Galley  (requires uid/pwd)
  2. Search for “AZURE”
  3. Choose Azure data lake Tools - but I cannot because its greyed out: “This workflow cannot be opened because the owner has disabled download”

My problem was that I was not using administrative privileges when installing the software. -russ

I had some problems installing the connector too. After a little back and forth with the Alteryx support desk, I was given a good idea on how to make this happen.


  • Change the extension to the package to .zip
  • Unzip everything into a directory
  • Look for and change requirements.txt so that all versions are >= rather than ==

ex. azure_data_lake_input_v1.0.2/requirements.txt:

azure-common==1.1.14 became azure-common>=1.1.14


  • Zip up the contents and change the extension back to .yxi
  • Install

Hopefully they'll roll out a new version so that it the libraries it depends on uses a minimum version or higher rather than a strict version number

Thanks for this.


I tried the suggestion (find + replace == with >= in both requirements.txt) but not getting another error:


Tool Installer Error: Unable to find a configuration file


If I have to guess, you used the Windows to extract the .zip, edited the files, then zipped it back up. That might miss something. I used 7Zip to open the .zip file, edited it, saved it all and installed it.
