When running or publishing a workflow that uses a Gallery Data Connection.
Unable to translate alias
This error can be seen when running/opening a workflow on Designer
Or when publishing the workflow to Gallery
Or when running the workflow on Gallery
Confirm that the data connection that you are using is a Gallery Data Connection:
In Designer select Options > Advanced Options > Manage Data Connections
The alias that you are using should have a type of 'Gallery'
If you do not see a Gallery connection and want to add one, please see the article Database Connection Share Through Gallery Admin for instructions.
Gallery Connection Sync issue (often occurs after upgrading Alteryx Server)
The Gallery Data Connection is shared with a Private Studio rather than explicitly with the workflow owner (the error will only occur on scheduler)
Open a File Explorer
Navigate to %APPDATA%\Alteryx\Engine
Delete or rename GalleryAlias.xml
Re-launch Alteryx Designer
If the issue only occurs on your Scheduler and runs fine everywhere else, the Gallery Data Connection needs to be shared explicitly with the owner of the workflow rather than their Private Studio/Subscription.
When sharing the connection, you can differentiate a Studio with User Accounts by checking the following:
Default avatar is a single silhouette
User membership icon will appear on the right
User's email will show
Why can't a user run a workflow in Gallery that uses a shared data connection?
As always, don't hesitate to contact us over at Customer Support if you run into any trouble.
We hope that you are as excited about this new feature as we are! The new Database Connection Share is a feature that will allow ease of access for your Alteryx users to your databases. The feature also allows the Alteryx Gallery and Database Administrators more governance over what connections are being made as well as who are making the connections.The Admin of the Gallery can create and manage their users' data connections.
