    Hi @gtorres8 - we are deploying a new version of Alteryx going from 2021.2 to 2022.1 in my organization and I am in the admin function. 


    We are looking to disable AMP engine globally via a script during product install. What settings would we need to update from an XML perspective that can disable AMP engine during install so that users won't have to manually do this when logging into Alteryx? Can you provide any guidance? 


    We tried the AMP engine but it is giving us quite a few issues with the Block until done results. We have already disabled it on our Server Controller and Server worker but looking to do it globally during install for Designer users to avoid having to guide many users through manually unchecking similar to Procedure A above. 


    Thank you,
