Changing the Gallery URL on Alteryx Server

Changing your private gallery URL can be very important, particularly when inviting end users to run applications, download macros and run workflows from your company's gallery. 

 

There are few steps you will have to take to make this happen:

 

The URL

  • The default URL will look like this: http://localhost/gallery/
  • The part of the URL which is editable is the "localhost" part and this can be changed to the IP or Machine Name of the server
  • The reason for the /gallery is when the full Alteryx Server is loaded and configured, AlteryxService (the Scheduler) takes root / for itself.  Since both the Scheduler and Gallery can’t coexist in the same area, Gallery is moved into its own subfolder

DSN Settings

  • DSN settings will need to be altered when you set up a fully qualified domain name (FQDN)
  • For example pointing a server with the computer name of ir-lt-jb-01 and an IP address of XXX.XXX.XX.XXXX to jordanbarker.alteryx.com.  You will need to get your company's IT department to make these edits as they will have access to their DNS servers

Thanks for posting this Jordan.  Can this be done by a Gallery Administrator - Curator in the Gallery?  Or does this need to be done on the server machine itself?

Hi @ggruccio,

 

Ultimately, you will need to have admin rights to the server machine as it writes a file in program files once you have updated the Alteryx System Settings. So access to the server will be needed.

Thanks for this - very useful!

 

I have to say, though, that it is just perplexing to not have done this other way around.  Meaning... why not run the Gallery from root (https://gallery.company.com) and run the Service/Scheduler from a subdirectory (https://gallery.company.com/ayxservice).  I mean, after all, the service has no UI and the Gallery does..

Thanks! It helps!

Just be remember to set up the firewall properly for the DNS as well

We too want to get rid of the "/gallery" in the URL ... please escalate this @JordanB.

Hi @jason_scarlett

 

I will do my best to raise this internally. But it hasn't yet been mentioned on the Server Ideas page to get product visibility.

 

Best,
