Adding my vote - how are people getting around this currently?

7 - Meteor

The only way I have found around it is to use the Smart View Dev Guide https://docs.oracle.com/applications/smartview/710/SVDVH/SVDVH.pdf to get the functionality you need. Then create a PS or batch script and run that from Alteryx.

So you are creating a VBA script to connect+pull--> then batch script+Alteryx to trigger. Got it

Upvoting, i used Alteryx for just about everything in my previous role and now that i have to connect to essbase i am constantly frustrated with my lack of options.
