List of what to get whitelisted for Python/Jupiter for antivirus 

Introduction
This is just to provide the list of items that we suggest to add to antivirus whitelists to stop any issue that come from antiviruses stopping our python tool.

Prerequisites 
  • Confirm that the client has anitvirus
  • If python is freezing or just hanging and is not in the task manager as it is running then it might be getting stopped by antivirus
  • Another issue is that python might not be trusted and the workbook.ipynb files might not get created causing a metadata issue
     
Procedure
The process of whitelisting is different based on the antivirus but the list that we suggest that is added so all python and python related items work are the following: NOTE - If you have version 2021.1.4 or higher replace JupyterTool_vEnv with DesignerBaseTools_vEnv
  • python.exe (Admin - C:\Program Files\Alteryx\bin\Miniconda3\envs\JupyterTool_vEnv    Non-Admin- C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Alteryx\bin\Miniconda3\envs\JupyterTool_vEnv)
  • jupyter.exe  (Admin - C:\Program Files\Alteryx\bin\Miniconda3\envs\JupyterTool_vEnv\Scripts  Non-Admin-  C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Alteryx\bin\Miniconda3\envs\JupyterTool_vEnv\Scripts)
  • jupyter-notebook.exe (Admin - C:\Program Files\Alteryx\bin\Miniconda3\envs\JupyterTool_vEnv\Scripts  Non-Admin-  C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Alteryx\bin\Miniconda3\envs\JupyterTool_vEnv\Scripts)

Assuming you have standard environment variables, you can refer to 
%AppData%\..\local\Alteryx\bin\Miniconda3\envs\

as a general path (rather than specifying each username).
