Workflow Documentation Tips / Export List of all workflows on Server

Highlighted
8 - Asteroid

Hi all

 

I need to clean up our Alteryx Server an need to document the existing workflows.

 

Is there a workflow available where I can export a list of all existing apps/workflows ? In the Alteryx_Server_Usage_Report I see only the workflows which were running in the last 30 days.

 

Are there some best practices available how to document and how to name Apps (Workflows) ?

 

Many thanks

 

Steffen

Hi @vizda,

 

A few different ways listed in order of ease:

 

  1. You can go to Gallery Admin and view the workflows. You can even copy/paste this page out and parse the details in Alteryx. Very manual process, but would give you a list of workflows on Gallery.
  2. You can do this via the Admin API. If taking this method, I would look at the Alteryx Connect Alteryx Gallery Loader and use part of that.
  3. There are also methods available through accessing the MongoDB, but that is a little more complicated as there are multiple collections to hit. If you want to take this method, I advise looking at the Server Usage report and adjusting the query.
