Use Spark with Alteryx

Atom

Hello, 

I'm new on Alteryx. 

Initially a Big Data developer. On my new mission, I'll work on Alteryx and would likek to develop Spark under Alteryx.

 

How to connect Spark to Alteryx?

Thanks for your help.

@Shakile,

 

You can download the drivers needed for Alteryx to connect to spark (and others) at the URL below. Access to these are covered under the EULA for use with Alteryx.

If you are using version 2018.1 you can use the native spark code tool to customise any spark processes in db wit R, python or scala code. This is in addition to being able to use the normal InDB tools.

In addition to  links in the solution already provided, if you want more information and are attending Inspire 2018, there will be a two hour training class on using the new Apache Spark Direct features in Alteryx. The class will be during the 10:30am to 12:30pm elective block on Monday, 4 June. See https://www.alteryx.com/inspire-2018-training for more details.
