Issue with email after upgrade to Alteryx Production Server 2018.4

12 - Quasar

We upgraded to Alteryx Production Server 2018.4 today and are experiencing an issue with emails --- they aren't working! One of my coworkers discovered that after she re-uploaded her workflow, it resolved the issue.


Anyone else experienced this?

Is there any other solution?


I'm trying to avoid re-uploading my workflows...there are too many!

Hi @ddiesel

I had this behavior, and It appears that the e-mail tools in the workflows are configured to auto-discover the SMTP. This setting was removed from new versions of Designer, So I think the best way to solve this is to configure the SMTP server within them.


Sorry, I know is not what you expected to read, but I don't know another way of solving this (at least it worked for me in many customers).


Hope this helps

Thanks for you reply, even though it's not great news.


None were set to auto-discover but the SMTP server did not populate. I'm attaching pictures of the email config in case it helps anyone else.
