If a job fails it would be perfect if we could set something in the workflow settings so that the job would retry again in X number of minutes for the next Y number of times. We have jobs that connect to external resources and sometimes the network will reset and will cause the connections to all drop. An example would be I want a workflow to try again in 10 minutes for a maximum of 5 times so over the next 50 mins it will retry every 10 mins if it fails
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.
Create a standardized Mailbox application that could bolt onto Alteryx Server, to handle incoming attachments from sources like a Service Desk (Service Now for example) and other applications.
Essentially anything that regularly exports data in the form of an emailed attachments to which Alteryx could, using a series of predefined user rules and a designated email address, put those attachments into various directories ready for processing by automated Alteryx workflows.
This would save a huge amount of time as people currently have to manually drag and drop files. At least the on board Alteryx designers here haven't been able to come with a solution. Would also save any messy programming around systems like Outlook and bending any security issues within those systems. Many, many other applications have this simple feature built in to their products, especially service desks. I believe there would be a huge benefit to this very simple bolt on.
