I would like to know if Alteryx API can be used to configure the server. Configure meaning the configurations and settings within runtimesettings.xml
Hi @rvandel3 ,
From my point of view, that is totally possible. You need to only develop an analytical app where you update the settings based on the parameters sent with your api call.
Be aware that you need to have also a bat file inside a run command tool, for instance, to restart your server right after in order to update the settings.
Hi fmvizcaino,Thank you for the response, so your saying Alteryx API can configure an Alteryx install?My last question about an API for Alteryx database query was what I was thinking about using.We automate most of our install as it is but we backup runtimesettings.xml for example, and we restore it after upgrade or install to have the server configured as it was before.Is this type of server configuration possible with the AP Alteryx includes with their product?
You can develop a workflow to edit runtimesettings.xml only, not to configure an install.
What I was thinking was to have a workflow opening the settings and replacing some data with what you specifically need.
But it doesn't seem to be a practical solution for what you need.
Also, I'm not aware of that to be included in any Alteryx product, but I could be mistaken.
