2022.1.1.30569 Patch Release Update

The 2022.1.1.30569 Patch/Minor release has been removed from the Download Portal due to a missing signature in some of the included files. This causes the files to not be recognized as valid files provided by Alteryx and might trigger warning messages by some 3rd party programs. If you installed the 2022.1.1.30569 release, we recommend that you reinstall the patch.

Option to return Salesforce "business" or "technical" object name

In the Python 3.6/3.8 versions of SF Input Tool, the business name of an object is returned (e.g., Quote).  In the now-deprecated Macro-based version of SF Input, the technical name was returned (e.g., Quote, Quote__c, SBQQ_Quote__c).

 

With the Python Input tools, there are multiple occurrences of "Quote" to select from with the SF Input tool.  This is confusing and leads to "guessing" which object is the right one.

 

See attached screenshots.

 

My proposal is to add an option to the SF Input tool to allow the workflow developer to choose whether technical or business names should be returned.

I full support this idea! This would be a big leaver for the data citizien. 

 

This option is available on other software solution (e.g. KNIME). 

 

And the two factor authentication as been already raised as an idea is crucial for our business.
