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!
The publishing endpoint, a POST to api/admin/v1/workflows/, is useless whenever workflows, apps, or macros contain Gallery Data Connections. The workflow will get published but valid Gallery Data Connections are ignored and the apps will not run.
Please add the same dependency checks against Gallery Data Connections as is performed when a workflow or app is manually published from Designer.
This might be considered a subset of the Idea Server API to extract / submit workflows.
Thank you for your consideration.
We leverage Active Directory groups to manage user permissions to most of our company's resources like databases, file shares, applications, etc. This idea is for the ability to manage a Gallery Data Connection via an Active Directory group. In many cases, our AD group membership actually dictates what permissions a gallery connection should have, but we must manually add/remove users to the Alteryx connection to keep it synched with AD.
I think there are several ways Alteryx could be enhanced to support this; i.e. the AD group could be specified on the connection itself or it could be inherited from a Studio where the subscription is enhanced to support assigning AD groups to it (which could benefit other areas of Alteryx).
I'm told by Alteryx support that this functionality is unsupported but to post the idea here. If anyone knows of workarounds to this limitation I'd certainly be interested!
Hello, I would like improved user management features and/or training
Add Admin ability to place the Alteryx Service (Engine) into Maintenance mode allowing current workflows to complete, but all new workflow processing moved into Queue to allow for server configuration and/or maintenance.
Currently, if I want to make a small configuration change (like a memory setting in the Runtime settings) I have to hunt for a quiet window or the lowest level of activity to kill the service (and the running jobs).
It would be helpful to flip a 'switch' and have all new jobs go into 'Queue' allowing for the change and service stop/restart ... then pick right back up with the queue in configured order. (execution time, priority level, etc...)
When saving to our company's gallery, we must deselect dozens of assets for our numerous workflows every time they need to be resaved, which is very frequent.
I would like to suggest a select/deselect all button under manage workflow assets. This would save a considerable amount of time.
Hello Alteryx team,
I would like to propose idea that was mentioned on the community but there is no solution either.
The issue is related to Qlik Analytics Samples and error that it is causing with wrong path error for default macros like eg.CountRecords.
I am an Artisan but not the Owner of the studio - I uploaded the workflow and would like to see all the jobs (including manually triggered) that run for my workflow so I can track any issues i.e. when workflow fails. I checked with the Owner of the studio and he also can see only the runs he triggered.
I understand from the Support team in my company that option to see all the jobs that run is currently available only for the Curator role but would be extremely helpful if you would make it available to all the users that have access to the Private Studio.
When we download from the gallery, please return both the altered gallery code and the original unaltered code so user can choose the base to build next version on.
Most everyone learns the hard way that saving to the gallery alters their code in ways that it may no longer work as it did before when running on desktop. After figuring out what has happened and laboriously un-doing the alterations that happen when saving to the gallery, we develop schemes to keep separate desktop versions of gallery apps in sync. These schemes should not be necessary.
I understand the difficulties of making Alteryx Designer and Alteryx Server available for Linux but there are so many organizations and possibilities for development and scaling on Linux environments. It would be incredibly helpful if Alteryx was available on Linux. Please strongly consider.
The Schedules tab of the Gallery currently lists all schedules, 20 to a page, with no option to filter. I am currently managing 183 active schedules. In order to find a single schedule, I have to sort by Workflow name, then page through 10 pages of schedules to find the schedule I'm looking for.
Please add an option to filter this list.
Ideally, I would like to be able to filter on multiple fields at once (example: Priority = High, Status = Active, Owner = Bob Smith, Times Run > 20). Barring that, a simple search option on workflow name, similar to the search option on the Collections tab, would be enough.
When using In-DB with iSeries over Generic ODBC everything works fine in Designer however when executing via Gallery process fails because a semi-colon ";" is added to the SQL statement as a terminator character and iSeries rejects this SQL0104 - Token ; was not valid. Valid Values < END OF STATEMENT >
We have a MongoDB connection string that we plug in to RuntimeSettings.xml during install. Upon startup, the Mongo connection fails because RuntimeSettings.xml expects the connecting string to be encrypted. The fix for this, is for someone to manually update the MongoDB connection via the Alteryx UI. We would like a way to encrypt the MongoDB connection string for RuntimeSettings.xml before we start Alteryx for the first time.
Hi Alteryx Team,
I understand that the Timeout feature on all Workers is only available for the workflows scheduled on Alteryx Server.
In a heavily used server environment and depending on how workflows are configured, can we have a timeout feature available for non-scheduled workflows (adhoc workflow runs/manually triggered workflow runs) as well on all the Workers on Alteryx Server ?
As a part of the installation process or Configuration setting for Alteryx Server , can there be an option added to turn on "Subscription API" enabled for ever
Have the Alteryx Server send a notification when the license is within a configurable amount of days to being expired via SMTP
