Do you use Alteryx in a language other than English? If so, we want to hear from you! Please help us improve the international experience of our products by participating in this 5 minute survey.
We are updating the requirements for Community registration. As of 7/21/21 all users will be required to register a phone number with their My Alteryx accounts. If you have already registered, you will be prompted on your next login to add your phone number.
I've seen various solutions/workarounds but this seems to be a table-stakes ask? When scheduling a workflow I should be able to specify which parameter values to run with. Just two of many use case examples -
Use case #1 - a single analytic app could be scheduled multiple times, each schedule specifying a different line of business
Use case #2 - credentials, allow the user to schedule a workflow with their saved credentials. When their credentials change all they would have to do is update the schedule parameters
(If you know a better way I'm all ears, not the API thought that isn't a bad way to do it, just not super Easy)
I would like to see the enhancement of being able to schedule a start and stop time for specific jobs that need to run multiple times per day, so they don't run during the nightly backup periods of the Alteryx server. This can cause the daily backups of the Alteryx Gallery to fail. Currently SQL Server Management Studio/SQL Server has the function to able to schedule start and stop times for specific job. Currently Scheduler page on Alteryx Gallery/Server lacks this feature.
Using current version of the server - you can see that there is no OAuth managed or published API endpoint for canvas delete (screenshot 1). However this API does CLEARLY exist as you can see if you inspect what happens when you hit the delete button (screenshot 2 clearly shows the API being called - but it requires user login security token)
Please can you enable this API for OAuth - the API already exists, it just needs to be exposed with the others.
I would like to set a retry count when scheduling a job, and also to specify to duration in between retries, e.g. job fails, but then will retry to run 3 times with a 5 minute wait in between each retry.
Also would like a radio button next to all workflow results, so when you get a list of failed jobs you can click all the jobs and then hit rerun. This should be complimented with select all functionality. This will prevent me from having to go into each job and rerunning, i.e. save me loadsa clicks!
How to bring user’s variables/information that we want to use within the workflow that will be published in the Analytic App in the Gallery (For example, I believe that all “non-sensitive” information from MongoDB related to the Gallery actual session should become variables)
Today in managing Alteryx server, we manually configure new connections using the front end. However, this has some potential drawbacks as it makes it hard to easily track change history, or make bulk updates to multiple strings, and it also leaves room for user error on configuration.
In this case I'm pretty specifically looking to modify aliases on the server itself. I'm not particularly concerned with distribution to a wider audience, and the usernames/passwords associated in this case should not be available for use locally by users. As a part of this, I am trying to identify a method to reduce or eliminate the need for anyone (including the data connection manager) to need to know the password for the specified accounts. As some of these accounts may be used by multiple systems, it would be significantly simpler to integrate this maintenance into existing automated processes, rather than have a manual step to update the Alteryx connection values on the Gallery.
This is specifically a challenge today with regards to specific usernames or passwords which need to be stored. Alteryx saves these values using machine-level encryption, but that is difficult to generate automatically. Having a supported method that would easily allow creation of this file with password-level information would greatly improve maintenance of the Alteryx Server, particularly from an IT automation perspective.
I think there should be option to test save data connection during setup and after. Perfectly, if there was possibility to schedule connectivity check, however, just adding option to test it manually will be the step forward.
This issue relates to an inability to input data from a database where access to only certain columns is permitted. This is due to PII data being present in the data.
I am trying to pull data from one table at a time using the standard ‘Input Data’ tool.
As I do not have table level access I am explicitly specifying the column names and not using a wildcard. Please see the example below, query highlighted in yellow and the returned error in red. You will see the error message returned from Alteryx suggests a * wildcard has been used despite specifying the exact fields to pull.
Several of the Ford GDIA team and Ford HPC team have reviewed this with me and cannot assist. The HPC team believe it is a bug in Alteryx which has been reported by other users internally, that is ‘Select *’ commands being sent from Alteryx despite specific columns being outlined in the query to the data lake. As we only have access to specific fields within Ranger (due to PII data) the select * fails and returns an error.
I can confirm my ODBC connections are all set correctly as I can pull from certain tables where I have full table level access but not others. Access rights are all in place as I can use the same query on Ambari without issue.
Thank you for any assistance you can provide,
Select STATION_ID, STATION_DESC from dsc60082_qlscm_tz_db.qlsc_station limit 10
Info: Input Data (3): ODBC Driver version: 03.80
Error: Input Data (3): Error SQLPrepare: [Hortonworks][Hardy] (97) Error occurred while trying to get table schema from server. Error: [Hortonworks][Hardy] (80) Syntax or semantic analysis error thrown in server while executing query. Error message from server: Error while compiling statement: FAILED: HiveAccessControlException Permission denied: user [mhiggi37] does not have [SELECT] privilege on [dsc60082_qlscm_tz_db/qlsc_station/*]
I believe it would require turning off the queries we currently run to retrieve metadata and retrieving metadata only for the columns selected in the query.
Please submit to our Idea Center for consideration. Thanks!
We are constantly moving workflows from our Dev environment up to Prod and then back down again to improve them. Even though we only used Gallery shared data connections, and both environments have the same name for each connection; the connections still break when opening the workflow in the other environment. This is because designer actually uses an ID code behind the string name instead of the name. And, even though connections exist by the same name in each environment, the code behind them is different.
I would like a way to be able to specify the data connection code so that I can make the code the same in both environments.
