Installing Python Package on server

6 - Meteoroid



I am trying to install a python package on our alteryx server using the below method:


installing python packages into Alteryx from command line

open command line as administrator

1) cd "C:\Program Files\Alteryx\bin\Miniconda3\Scripts"

2) activate JupyterTool_venv

3) cd "C:\Program Files\Alteryx\bin\Miniconda3\envs\JupyterTool_vEnv\Scripts"

4) pip install --trusted-host --trusted-host <package_name>


I don’t get any errors when the command prompt runs, but when I try to run a workflow with the installed package on the server I am getting the below error….is there something else I need to do to properly install the package?
