Getting Started Pop Up - Settings File

Alteryx
Alteryx

Hi,

 

I'm trying to restore Alteryx to its default settings using a batch script. I have more or less acheived this by copying a stored version of UserSettings.xml to "C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Alteryx\Engine\<version>\" but for some reason, the setting to "Show Getting Started window at Startup" isn't held in this file. Does anyone know where it is stored?

 

Thanks,

In UserSettings.xml, I think it is 

<ProxyConfiguration NoInherit="False"><![CDATA[IEProxyString=ProxyCommonPassword=ProxyCommonUserName=ProxyRequiresCredentials=false]]></ProxyConfiguration>

 

when it is disabled.

does the file "Getting Started.xml" exists under "C:\Program Files\Alteryx\bin\RuntimeData\Palettes"

can you Check the "Show Getting Started at Start up" Check box as below and try whether its shows up or not

The GettingStarted.xml file is there regardless of whether I check the box or not - and the contents do not change either.

The setting is not in the UserSettings.xml file. When I copy the original version of it over, it doesn't effect the setting within Alteryx.

You are right, @JamieD. I just got confirmation from development that it is stored in the registry.

Hello Tara,

 

Can you also find out where it is stored in the registry. I want to be able to disable the pop-up for users with needing to go into Alteryx Designer.

 

Regards,

Roel
