Ability to change the Gallery URL on Alteryx Server

It would be nice to be able to change the Gallery URL from:

to:

The reason being to make it easier for end users to find the server/content.

The forward slash gallery makes it not look like an enterprise tool. At least gallery.url.com looks more professional.

I have set up a redirect in the IIS configuration of our server from alteryx.mycompany.com to alteryx.mycompany.com/gallery.

 

But I agree, it would be cool to have this in the default configuration, so I do not need to think about it anymore.

Status changed to: Implemented

Thank you for posting this idea. I will be changing the status of this idea to Implemented since changing or removing the '/gallery' has been possible since at least 10.0. Changing it to anything other than gallery is as simple as updating the Gallery Base URL in system setting (i.e. http(s)://host.domain.tld/{anyString}).

 

Removing it entirely does come with a few caveats though. Since by default both the AlteryxService and AlteryxCloudCmd (Gallery) processes bind to the same port, and the AlteryxService binds to the root path removing the sub folder will cause a conflict. To work around this you must either change the Gallery port by enabling SSL or specifying a port in the setting (i.e. 'https://host.domain.tld/' or 'http://host.domain.tld:{portNumber}'), or change the AlteryxService port see: https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Alteryx-Server-Knowledge-Base/Running-Alteryx-Server-on-a-port-othe.... Once the Service and Gallery are running on separate ports you will be able to start and access the webUI with the sub folder removed.

 

Please note that removing the sub folder does have some limitations. Specifically you will not be able to use SAML authentication with this configuration as Gallery would intercept all of the traffic intended for the AlteryxAuthenticationService since it binds to a sub folder of the root that Gallery is now listen to instead of the AlteryxService. You may also run into some issues with Insights for similar reasons.
