It's the most wonderful time of the year - Santalytics 2020 is here! This year, Santa's workshop needs the help of the Alteryx Community to help get back on track, so head over to the Group Hub for all the info to get started!
As organizational standard we can not save user name and password for the database access in the workflows.
So we want a way for Alteryx to get the username password from a configuration file or web service which provides the connection string with user name password encrypted in it.
Then I want to use this connection string in my input tool to connect to the database and save the workflow and schedule it on scheduler or share with anyone.
I am trying to use Dynamic input tool to use the connection string thus provided by the curl in command prompt tool and I am running in to couple of issues.
The Dynamic input tool does not seem to have an option to replace connection string. is this something that can be done in Alteryx ?
Also, when I am trying to connect to SQL server I am getting only the alias in the dynamic input tool (due to the newer interface of setting up connection). When I tried to use "other database connection" to use oledb so that I can get the connection string in dynamic input (to replace if possible), the connection fails to fetch the tables in the database.
(I am using Curl in the command prompt tool to get the encrypted connection string from the web service).
