Is R installed on server by default? How can I verify?

@Analytics_Pooja R will only be installed on the Alteryx Server if it is selected during the initial configuration. It can be added after the fact if not by downloading the corresponding version of the predictive tools from downloads.alteryx.com

Thanks @BrandonB . How can I confirm if it is installed on the server or not. I don't see R console.

You may need to check with your server administrator or IT group if you do not have access

@BrandonB  - I think you are stating that we can download the Predicitve Tools for Designer and install them on the Server.  Can you confirm?
