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!
Currently, to allow a user to schedule jobs, prioritize jobs, assign jobs, create collections, or have API access, toggles must be set at the user level.
As a server administrator, I want to configure these toggles at the group level, so that a) I don't have to modify a large number of users individually to grant them such permissions, b) I ensure consistency across groups of users that doesn't rely on humans clicking all the right things for each of the relevant people, and c) I can easily change these settings for multiple people, if needed.
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!
It would be really useful to be able to obtain the user name of some one running an app in the Gallery. This could be used for instance in row level security for people running an app that produces a report and that data is considered sensitive
With a majority of our Alteryx users working via VPN, our Firewall systems are detecting a brute force attack if a user tries to open another Alteryx tab within 60 seconds. We would like to request to reduce the amount of authentications attempts on the Alteryx Gallery site when launched, so there isn't 100+ 401 unauthorized errors to trigger the Firewall system to disconnect the session.
As an Alteryx Admin, we have too many users to maintain the Data Connections for every connection that every user has. A nice add to the collections ability is to create and share Data Connections among users of only that Collection. Managed by the Collection Admin(s), they would be able to manage their own credentials and connection strings for their team and project.
