I am trying to set up a System alias, but the System option is grayed out or missing. How can I create a System alias?
Standard Connection - System connection is grayed out:
In-DB Connection - System connection is not an option:
Alteryx must be run with elevated privileges in order to be able to create a System alias connection within Alteryx. If you have certain permissions, you can run Alteryx as an administrator and then try and create it. Simply right-click on the Alteryx program (or on the Alteryx icon on your desktop) and choose 'Run as administrator' (see below). Otherwise, you will have to get administrative rights in order to add a System alias.
