I am looking to publish data source from Alteryx to Tableau Server. I downloaded the Publish to tableau server tool from alteryx gallery but I don't know how to install that in my alteryx designer. can someone please help me with that ?
I also encountered with the same issue. I have opened the file and was able to see the screen shown by Daniel. but still I don't see the "Publish to Tableau Server" tool when I search in tool bar of Alteryx Designer.
You said that you can see the screen shown above. Did you then follow the instructions and run the app to install? If you have run the app and selected the 'Install' radio button then hit Finish and you still can't see the tool after restarting Alteryx, then reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
Alteryx provides several options for creating custom tools. One method for deploying a custom tool involves packaging the tool and all of its dependencies into a single .yxi file.
When a tool that is packaged as a .yxi file is installed, the tool is added to the tool palette in Designer and the .yxi file and supporting macros are installed in the AppData\Roaming folder in the user’s account. For example:C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Alteryx\Tools\<tool name>.
A .yxi file must be manually installed before a workflow that includes that tool can be run. In order for a tool package to be available to Gallery and workflow scheduling processes on a machine, a Gallery Administrator must copy the contents of the .yxi file to theC:\ProgramData\Alteryx\Toolsdirectory on the server. In a multi-node configuration, the .yxi file must be added to every worker machine in your server deployment.
To install a tool package:
Double-click the .yxi file and selectOKin the Tool Installer window.
Locate the user's Tools directory:C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Alteryx\Tools.
Copy the folder of the tool to be installed on the server.
Paste the folder in the following directory: C:\ProgramData\Alteryx\Tools.
Alteryx loads tools in the Designer from these locations in the following order:
