Python SDK: Cannot import module 'AlteryxPythonSDK'


I am trying to build an app that will use a custom python tool that I'm trying to make with the sdk. I created a venv in the directory that I have my Gui, config, and engine files. As a test, I started python in the command prompt to make sure i am running the miniconda version that I need. When I do this, I see:


Python 3.6.0 |Continuum Analytics, Inc.| (default, Dec 23 2016, 11:57:41) [MSC v.1900 64 bit (AMD64)] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.


So far, this all looks good. However, when i do:

import AlteryxPythonSDK as Sdk


I get the error:

ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'AlteryxPythonSDK'


Is this supposed to happen? I suspect that I need to use the:

class AyxPlugin:


that I see in all other examples to get it to work but am not 100% sure on this. Anyone able to offer some clarification?

Hi @g_rose,


I can't give you a solution but this may sit better in the 'dev space':




Thanks. I'll x-post it there.
