The Server and External Website

Alteryx Partner

Hi everyone,

 

So, let's say. I have the Alteryx Server. Users can run any workflow without having the designer if they have the server (so long as the workflow is hosted in the gallery).

 

I haven't seen the actual Alteryx server yet. But considering the statement above, I create an app to generate report, put it in the gallery/server. Then my boss can run that app from the server, choose several parameters and generate the report.

 

But, can I use some kind of API or connection to external website (let's say I have a company website). Where users can fill forms, click a button from my company's website, and my website connects to Alteryx server and runs the app for the users, and then users can generate the report from my website...

 

Pretty much the same, but there is another website as an intermediary between the user and the server. Can it?

 

 

Thank you in advance.

 

Best regards,

Mizu.

Absolutely, Alteryx Gallery has an API which allows you to queue the execution of a job and retrieve the output. Here is the API documentation: https://gallery.alteryx.com/api-docs/

 

If you want to see a working example of this, check out our Alteryx demos which use the Gallery API to create a forecast from user inputs in a website form and output the results to Tableau

Great!

Just what we need.

 

I expect to create a machine learning model, and have users fill in the blanks and get their predictive results.

 

Thank you!
