Hello Dev Space,

 

As part of the 20.4 release, there are important updates being made to the embedded version of Python that may impact you if you have built any tools with the Python SDK. 

 

More details about this upgrade and steps to take to ensure your tools are compatible with 20.4 can be found here: Python Upgrade for Tool Developers

Hi @TashaA ,

 

Can you share if the vulnerabilities mentioned affect the standard tools that are using the embedded Python or is this only related to custom tools created/use of the Python tool itself?

 

Thank you for your time and the clarification.

Hey @AndrewDataKim ! 

 

Prior to 2020.4, there were multiple tools within Alteryx that leveraged the embedded Python version 3.6. This could be anything from a data connector that is found on the Gallery to the Python tool itself. With the 2020.4 upgrade, these items have been updated to utilize Python 3.8.

 

Hope this helps! 

 

Best,

Tasha
