The "Manage Data Connections" tool is fantastic to save credentials alongside the connection without having to worry when you save the workflow that you've embedded a password.
Imagine if - there were a similar utility to handle credentials/environment variables.
Example Entry Tableau:
Then when configuring a tool you could put in something like [Tableau Prod].[Password] and it would read in the value.
Or maybe for Sharepoint:
Or perhaps for a team file location:
Any of these values could be referenced in tool configurations, formulas, macro inputs by specifying the Alias and field.
Please consider also this idea about credentials alias :https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Alteryx-Designer-Ideas/Single-password-change-for-everything/idi-p/...
As an Alteryx Artisan/Designer/user I want:
YES! YES!! YES!!! This would save me a lot of headache. We can add the salesforce connector to that as well.
Thank you for posting to the Alteryx Community! This idea is currently being reviewed by the Alteryx Development Team for a possible future release. Please note that this review process can take some time, we’ll do our best to keep you up to date on the status of your idea.
Thank you for the feedback! We are currently working on redesigning the way Alteryx handles and stores data connections and credentials to a more user friendly method, similar to a credential manager. As this is a fairly large undertaking, fully implementing this feature may take some time, however we do hope to have this available in a 2020 Alteryx release.
You could try this custom tool I made recently to access saved credentials from Windows Credentials Manager.
