Publish to Public Alteryx Gallery

6 - Meteoroid

Hi There,


I'm looking to disable the publish to Public Alteryx Gallery feature within Alteryx 2020 for security reasons as I don't want people within my organisation accidentally publishing a workflow there.


My organisation managed to get this working for Alteryx 2019 by making some changes to HKEY within the system.  I know that Alteryx 2020 has changed the way that this works and I wondered if you guys have some insight into how it might be possible to disable the publish to public gallery feature within Alteryx 2020?


Thanks for your help,

@echuong1 gives right-on answer, just in case you have difficulty finding the file.

Thanks @echuong1  and @Qiu,


Alteryx users at my company would be wanting to publish to more than one Server Gallery so would want a solution that would allow more than one connection.


Our previous solution made use of the HKEY files in alteryx see below:

Set-ItemProperty -Path "%\SRC\Alteryx\GalleryCredentials" -Name "Gallery0_Password" -Value ""
Set-ItemProperty -Path "HKCU:\Software\SRC\Alteryx\GalleryCredentials" -Name "Gallery0_Email" -Value ""
Set-ItemProperty -Path "HKCU:\Software\SRC\Alteryx\GalleryCredentials" -Name "Gallery0_Name" -Value "our Private Gallery name"
Set-ItemProperty -Path "HKCU:\Software\SRC\Alteryx\GalleryCredentials" -Name "Gallery0_Url" -Value "!"
Set-ItemProperty -Path "HKCU:\Software\SRC\Alteryx\GalleryCredentials" -Name "Gallery0_WindowsAuth" -Value "True"

But this no longer seems to work in Alteryx 2020.


Any thoughts?

Hey @billygreenway ,


Alteryx naturally adds additional servers to the list as you use them (using the "add new gallery" menu option) - we allow people to publish to a dev server, UAT server etc - and we don't add these servers to runtimesettings.xml, instead we just teach the people how to connect for the first time.   


This should achieve what you are looking to do.
