Hiding from a choice list an user who is not an Alteryx user

Hello,

Now it is possible to share a collection which a user who is not granted to access Alteryx server.

 

We use AD to grant users access to Alteryx Gallery. However, when a user is not in this group, it is still possible to choose him as a person to share. 

 

In my opinion, such user should be indicated as someone who won't be able to use a shared collection, or he should be presented at all.

 

Best,

Piotr

@piotrzawistowski , thanks for your idea. I just want to clarify I understand the request. I got two interpretations from what you posted:

  • Admins can block users from being shared with
  • Admins can stop collections from being shared with users who are not already part of the Server

Are either of these what you're looking for?

Hi Tanya,

 

The access to our Gallery is allowed by being a member of proper AD group. Saying it differently: if you're not in correct AD group, you can't get into Gallery...

but...

Even if you are not in dedicated AD group, you can be shared with a subscription. Saying this: Alteryx displays people from AD server but doesn't check if they can access Gallery.

 

Hope this explanation helps.

 

Thanks,

Piotr

Your comments were quite helpful. We will look at how this fits into the current strategy and I will follow up when we decide if we're going to incorporate this into the product. Thank you!
