Database driver versions are a constant trauma for the admin team and for our Designer users. We have situations where drivers are different between two peers who are working on the same flow, or where the flow breaks as soon as it's posted to the gallery etc.
What would really help is if Alteryx were able to create a driver pack (working with the major vendors), which contains the latest version of the major database drivers. We could then roll this out to all the designer & server machines to make sure that we have consistency across the user base.
This would need to include:
- MS SQL
- Apache Kudu / Spark
Plus a few others, I'm sure
This is a pain for Alteryx to do this centrally, I know, but it's orders of magnitude less painful than having to do this manually (by searching for the latest drivers on every manufacturer's sites) on every designer workstation across the firm.
