Unable to connect to Alteryx Gallary through Python API.

5 - Atom

I’m trying to connect to Alteryx Gallery using the Alteryx API through python programming.

But it always failed to connect and return the error “'message': 'The provided signature(oauth_signature) is invalid.'”.

I double check the API key and secret, and I was able to connect to the Gallery interactively with same key and secret “https://gallery.alteryx.com/api-docs/”. 


C:\Users\Employee\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python39\python.exe C:/Users/Employee/PycharmProjects/tmp/AlteryxGalleryAPI/AlteryxGalleryAPI/apiTestVersion2.py



{"data":null,"exceptionName":"UnauthorizedException","innerExceptionMessage":"","message":"The provided signature(oauth_signature) is invalid."}

(<Response [401]>, {'data': None, 'exceptionName': 'UnauthorizedException', 'innerExceptionMessage': '', 'message': 'The provided signature(oauth_signature) is invalid.'})


Please help me to get this resolved.


Hi @rsamineni , how do you exactly call the API and how do exactly sign your requests? Sharing your code could help.
