Is there a way within Alteryx Server, or by some other means (custom workflow perhaps) to trace the individual changes made by users to workflows stored on the Alteryx Server? Down to the tool/code change level? Thanks.
I think there haven't been any replies because there isn't a concise answer to this one. There's a couple ways to approach this that will depend on the development environment.
- XML Changes. This would involve building a workflow that compares the XML of two different versions and summarizes changes. This would be great for quantifying changes in formulas (ex: [A]+[B] was changed to [A]+[C]), but gets tricky when there are tools or connections are modified. Alteryx Gallery conveniently allows access to previous versions. Workflows saved locally will need to depend on differences from the .bak file.
- User Input. My organization has many awesome Alteryx users, so most workflows that are put into production have notation included. This includes a change log in a Comment box at the top for workflows used by all users.
