Connecting to Server's MongoDB


Hi @KJennings,


It's possible Lucene isn't one I typically use or found useful.


For workflows, you can find that under AtleryxService db and As_applications to get the modules names and users who ran them and when

For what workflow is loaded in the Gallery, I would us appInfos in the AlteryxGallery db give you information on what workflows have been uploaded

Alteryx has a Gallery report tool which was on their download page, but I can't find it anymore, but I used that as one of my starting points and modified it for my own needs


Just to round off the information. The 3rd DB that you're talking about is AlteryxGallery_Lucene, however you shouldn't need to get anything from that.


Some more info can be found among the User Managed info here


Hi @levell_x_dunn, @KaneG


Thank you for that information, it is exactly what I was trying to locate.

Does anyone know where the actual worklflows/apps are stored? I've been snooping around with the MongoDB input, but can't seem to find a way to get my hands on the actual files. I assume they have been stored as blobs and I've converted some  of __ServiceData fields that seem to have some data in it, but it looks like it's just metadata and not the actual workflow.

Hi All,


I am in midst of creating an orchestrator of sorts and would like to use the MongoDB as a way to identify if workflow was added to queue or complete.


Use-case aside, the "AS_QUEUE" table shows null for the workflow name that I am running ("appName"). This I assume because it is not an app and I am running it from it's disk location. My question is if there is a way I can get that workflow path/name and join it to the queue/results tables? I have been able to find the workflow path/name in "AS_Applications", but have not found a successful way to join that back to queue/results collections.


Any insight here?





Hi there, 


Another VM user over here. 


I can connect to the VM using telnet. The password and username work fine when connecting to the MongoDB on the server using localhost.


But, If I enter a database name (AlteryxService, AlteryxGallery, etc.), I don't get anything in the Collection drop down. Any ideas what might be happening?mongo.PNG






I was getting the same thing today.


When I was on the controller the DB and collection would not come up in the drop down; but when I went to the worker machine, after entering the DB, the collection drop down got populated.


I'm not sure why the difference between the controller and worker...


Hope this might help you.
