C# Engine SDK - decrypt Gallery Connection Aliases

Alteryx
Alteryx

Hi everyone,

 

Is there a way through the C# Engine API to decrypt the GalleryAlias.xml file that contains the database connections pushed from the Gallery? 

 

A customer has built their own connectors to their Oracle databases using the C# API. They'd like to use the Gallery Aliases for better governance but obviously they'll need to read them as part of their connector code.  

 

 

Thank you.

Hi, wouldn't be better to use Gallery REST API to get connections directly from the Gallery? But they can also use AlteryxGuiToolkit.AlteryxEngineApi.AlteryxEncryptPassword() method to decrypt that file.
