Export / Import configs for Aliases and Macro Search Paths

Highlighted

Hi all,

 

I was wondering if there is an easier way to export all the aliases defined  (from alias manager) on one machine and import into another machine? Same question applies for export / import of the macro search paths.

 

Do you know the location on disk where it saves this info and if it is in the readable format? 

 

Thanks,

Sandeep.

Alias repository xml can be found here - > C:\Users\<ID>\AppData\Roaming\Alteryx\Engine\UserAlias.xml

 

So, i think this xml can be copied onto other machine to access aliases.

 

it will be great if similar type of file exists for macro search paths.. waiting for experts views on this.

 

Thanks,

Sandeep.

I wonder how moving to another machine will affect any encrypted passwords. Since encryption is typically linked to the user/machine, I'm not sure that just copying over to a new machine will work.

 

Thanks Rod L. I will test it and see if that works.

 

Any idea on Macro search paths related question from above ?

 

Thanks,

Sandeep.
