Is it possible to publish workflows from a newer version of Designer to an older version of Server? For example, can a user use Designer version 2020.1 to publish to Alteryx Server 2019.4?

    • Mismatching versions


Cause


Attempting to publish a workflow from a newer version of  Alteryx Designer to an older version of Alteryx Server.

Resolution


It is not possible to publish to an older version of Alteryx Server from a newer version of Alteryx Designer. Doing so will typically result in validation failures and the workflow not functioning.

It is OK to publish from an older version of Alteryx Designer to a newer version Alteryx Server. However, the best practice to avoid any potential issues is to ensure that the Designer and Server versions match.
 

Additional Information

It is also possible to run two different versions of Designer side by side. See this KB article for more information.
