Automate Alteryx server configuration

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 @rvandel3 ,

 

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.

 

Best,
