Alteryx receive filter parameters through API

Highlighted
Meteoroid

Hello, 

 

I am working on a project which involves taking data from an Azure database and build various reports based on user input such as start date, end date etc. The azure database is created through a website and I want to allow user to choose their report input (start date, end date etc.) and this is used as parameters for an Alteryx workflow.

 

Is that something which is possible and if yes, where can I find some working examples/ documentations?

 

Thanks!

You will need to utilise Alteryx Server to be able to invoke the API that is available through there.

 

We have documentation here: https://gallery.alteryx.com/api-docs/

 

Here is Alteryx itself using the Alteryx API which hopefully give you a bit of an idea of how it works:
