Bloomberg Connector


If anyone is looking for seamless ways to connect Alteryx to Bloomberg, we have created a Connector. We built this to solve our own challenges and it was too good to keep to ourselves. More information can be found at

Hi Scott,

With the Sign in for Alteryx BBG Connector, what is the Alteryx Installation Directory path?  I've tried c:\Program Files (x86) \Alteryx\ and with bin and no dice, I have the path wrong. Obviously user error.  Thoughts?



Wherever Alteryx is installed.


Typical is C:\Program Files\Alteryx


Hi Scott, 


Thanks for your fantastic connector and before I start thank apologies as I am very much an alteryx beginner.


I'm struggling to connect an excel book as an input into your connector rather than a text file. I am getting the below error message. 


Designer x64 The Designer x64 reported: InboundNamedPipe::ReadFile: Not enough bytes read. The pipe has been ended. ¶


Both the excel book and the workflow are attached.


Does the connector only take text files or am I just being slow?


Thanks in advance,

Hi Scott. Thank you for sharing this information. When I try to sign up for trial on I keep getting error message "Issue in creating new user. Please contact" . I tried using both my company and personal email but keeps getting the same error message, hence I could not download the Connector. Is there any solution for the problem ?
