Alteryx Server installation on AWS EC2 | Not able to access gallery from local Designer

Highlighted

Dear Members of the Community,

 

We are conducting some for POCs on Alteryx server (version 11.8 ) and have installed it on one of our AWS EC2 instance.

 

Now when we are trying to connect the gallery from a browser/designer on the EC2 instance itself, we are successfully able to do so but are not able to connect to gallery from out local machine designers/web browser. 

 

Has anyone encountered similar issue before and would be able to provide some much appreciated assistance in this regard? Thanks!

 

Best Regards,

Hi @anuj_mangal,

 

Just a thought, have you enabled inbound traffic to port 80/443 on your EC2 instance?

Thanks for your response. 

 

I have attached a snapshot of the security groups I have configured on my EC2 instance. I believe they incorporate the suggestions in the AWS link you have shared. But still I am not able to connect to the gallery/controller from designer on my local machine.

Yep, that all looks good!

 

Might need some help from the big guns here, @MarqueeCrew @SeanAdams  any thoughts here?

Hi @anuj_mangal,

 

Your security group looks correct. To clarify, you stood up a Windows 2008 or 2012 AMI and then installed Alteryx Server on it? Please try a few things:

- Can you try disabling Windows firewall for all profiles, public and private, on the Windows Server AMI and test again? If that works, re-enable the firewall and open port 80/443.

- From a browser on your local machine, can you open a browser to the public IP of the Windows Server AMI and view the Alteryx Server "Analytics Gallery" web page?

- Do you have any other AMIs in addition to Alteryx Server? Are you able to ping the IPs of them from your local machine?

 

I am a Product Manager at Alteryx and own Cloud Strategy so I would love to connect with you later to talk more about your cloud use with Alteryx.

Hi @MattB,

 

Thanks for you response. When I turned the firewall off, I was able connect to gallery through my local system. Post that i tried the second part in point 1 of your solution and was able to access gallery after enabling the firewall. 

 

Thanks again for your time and effort in resolving this issue.
