How To: Obtain Web Configuration (Jupyter) Logs for the Python tool


Starting with Alteryx Designer 2018.4, the Python tool can now produce a log file for its web configuration, Jupyter. Note that the log file will reset when Alteryx Designer is restarted and a Python tool is added to the canvas, or a workflow containing a Python tool is loaded. This file can be helpful for troubleshooting whenever the Python tool GUI does not load.

  1. Go to Alteryx default temporary folder (available through menu Options, User Settings, Edit User Settings, tab Default)
  2. Look for file jupyter_server.log

Example: %ProgramData%\Alteryx\Engine\jupyter_server.log
