After a recent upgrade of Alteryx Designer and now trying to create a new database connection (such as SQL Server or Oracle), the following error occurs:
internal error in SRC_GetCosmeticName_Raw
When trying the Manage Data Connections window, the following error occurs and Designer has to be killed:
An Unhandled Exception occurred. A previous action may not have completed successfully.
- Alteryx Product
- Any Database Platform
Corrupted Alias XML files after upgrade.
1. Close Designer.
2. Browse to the following files and make a copy of them to the Desktop. (This is to backup the XML files away from the Alteryx folder.)
3. Delete those XML files and re-open Designer and re-test the issue.
When re-opening Designer, only the GallerAlias.xml file will be re-created using the Sync button on the Manage Data Connections window.
If pasting either the SystemAlias.xml and/or UserAlias.xml, brings back the original error, then the files are corrupted. Repeat the resolution steps above and create the connections again from the Alteryx GUI.
