Moderator

Created on

Hello #AlteryxAddicts,

 

tl;dr
The C# (.NET) SDK will be deprecated in December 2019. Users currently leveraging the C# SDK for custom tools will need to convert their tools to a different backend (C++, Python, or macro) ahead of its deprecation. As part of this, the UI of the tool will also need to be reconfigured using the HTML GUI SDK, or macro if using a macro.

FAQ
What Is Happening? The C# (.NET) SDK will be deprecated in December 2019. See the 'Next Steps' section for more information.

What is the C# SDK? A way for .NET developers to create their own custom tools for Alteryx. Documentation can be found here: [installdirectory]\Alteryx\APIs\SampleCode\DotNetCustomTools.pdf

Why is this changing? Alteryx is putting more resources into improving the C++ and Python SDKs.


Who's Impacted? Anyone who is leveraging the C# (.NET) SDK.

Who's Not Impacted? Anyone who is not utilizing the C# (.NET) SDK.

What should we use instead? The Python SDK, C++ SDK, or macro backend (https://help.alteryx.com/developer/current/BuildCustomTools.htm).

Next steps? The C# (.NET) SDK will be deprecated in December 2019. Custom tools utilizing the C# (.NET) SDK might continue to work on Windows, but not all existing functionality will be available and you should consider converting the backend of your tools to something that will be supported, such as Python, C++, or macro. The UI of the tool will also need to be reconfigured using the HTML GUI SDK, or a macro (Interface tools) if using a macro. Links to backend options documentation: Python, C++, or macro. Links to frontend options documentation: macro or HTML GUI SDK documentation.
