Single password change... for everything

The idea is to store credentials, login/pw in a "credential alias".

 

Then, those credential aliases can be used in :

-traditional aliases/connection

-in database aliases/connection

-hdfs aliases/connection

-API

-on user aliases for connected controllers/gallery

...etc.

 

The idea is that I only have to change the credentials once for all the connection type (on Hive, I have the in db alias, the traditional alias and even an HDFS alias using exactly the same credentials !! and I have to change all that manually).

Hey @saubert

 

This capability is available on the server for database connections - and I agree that this needs to be extended to cover APIs; sharepoint; network shares etc.

Have a look at the ideas logged under the Server (https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Alteryx-Server-Ideas/idb-p/server-ideas) and you can contribute your thoughts to these threads too?
