Want to start scheduling workflows? First, you will need to connect to the controller of your server
When connecting your desktop to the Controller, you need two things: the machine name of the server and the controller token.
1. What’s a machine name, you ask? It is also known as the full computer name. On the machine housing Alteryx Server, the machine name can be found here - Control Panel\System and Security\System. Mine looks something like computername.domain.com.
2. The Controller token comes from Alteryx System Settings, also located on the machine that houses the server. It is under Controller>General. Click View, copy and paste the controller token into notepad and save it somewhere safe! *Regenerate only if completely necessary, this will cause issues for existing schedules*
You are now ready to connect to the Controller!
3. Go to Options>View Schedules>Controller dropdown>Connect to Controller
And the final step is copying and pasting the Machine name and Controller token you gathered earlier.
