Allow In-DB tools to use Shared Gallery Data Connections

The shared data connections from the Gallery have been very helpful in centralizing data connection information between desktop users and their workflows when saved to the Gallery. The In-DB tools currently cannot take advantage of the Gallery Data Connections and require a completely separate setup that is both confusing and adds additional connection management work for creation/password changes. 


It would be a great enhancement to Alteryx if all connections for the different types of tools could be centrally managed from the shared Data Connections manager found in the Gallery.


Best regards,

Thanks @rdoptis for sharing the idea. We completely agree and have heard this from other customers. This request is already noted as a possibility. As announced during Inspire in London, we are excited to roll out our next generation platform in 2019. This platform will feature a new version of a connection manager.


This would be very useful to have.

After further review of the idea we no longer will have this feature specifically on the roadmap. We may address this with alternative features in the future.
