It would be great if we could have a Windows Active Directory data connector tool added to the standard Alteryx toolset.
MS Excel Power Query and PowerBI both can connect to Active Directory for use as a data source, but are both very cumbersome to use. Having a connector in Alteryx that can read AD data into a workflow would be super helpful for a long list of use cases. A couple that are top of mind for me are:
-Leveraging group membership info for dynamic distribution of reports or datasets
-Being able to build reporting and dashboards about the organization (useful for Tech audit, HR, etc.)
I've seen links to an old project on GitHub of someone that started development on this, but the method (just copy these random .dlls into your program directory) is seriously frowned upon by any enterpise IT. Would be great if Alteryx could pick up that work, polish it a bit and add it to the actual Alteryx Designer toolset.
