Using the Gallery API to run your apps from an external website

The Gallery API is still a mystery to me as I don't have a use case for it and therefore haven't worked with it yet. I'd love to see some examples of it in action.


Hi John,


I think this is a great idea and an example would help the alteryx community. In the meantime, check out this link:


This shows how to call the alteryx api in order to edit and existing app. It's a quick reference to help someone get started.


Hope you're well!

Hey John, 


You'll be happy to know that we're taking this idea and expanding it to Rest APIs in general with Alteryx and we've added it as a session to the Alteryx Technology Track. Thank you for your suggestion!

I am using the REST API with success but I am having difficulty specifying the parameter value(s) for a "QuestionListbox" type. The schema retruned from the "questions" api call is below. But nothing I do to indicate which of the reports are checked seems to work when I post the request. The error is always "At least 1 report must be selected." Please advise.


    "name": "ReportList",
    "type": "QuestionListBox",
    "description": "Select which reports you would like. At least one report must be selected.",
    "items": [ { "key": "Business Summary Report", "value": "<Report Type=\"summary\">Business Summary Report</Report>" }, { "key": "Complete Demographic Summary Report", "value": "<Report Type=\"summary\">Complete Demographic Summary Report</Report>" }, { "key": "Consumer Expenditure Food Beverage Grocery Detail Comparison", "value": "<Report Type=\"summary\">Consumer Expenditure Food Beverage Grocery Detail Comparison</Report>" }, { "key": "Consumer Expenditure Food Beverage Grocery Detail Summary", "value": "<Report Type=\"summary\">Consumer Expenditure Food Beverage Grocery Detail Summary</Report>" }, { "key": "Consumer Expenditure Restaurant Detail Summary", "value": "<Report Type=\"summary\">Consumer Expenditure Restaurant Detail Summary</Report>" }, { "key": "Consumer Expenditure Summary Report", "value": "<Report Type=\"summary\">Consumer Expenditure Summary Report</Report>" }, { "key": "Daytime Population Summary Report", "value": "<Report Type=\"summary\">Daytime Population Summary Report</Report>" }, { "key": "Demographic Snapshot Charts Comparison", "value": "<Report Type=\"summary\">Demographic Snapshot Charts Comparison</Report>" }, { "key": "Executive Summary Report with Charts", "value": "<Report Type=\"summary\">Executive Summary Report with Charts</Report>" }, { "key": "Mosaic Detail Charts", "value": "<Report Type=\"summary\">Mosaic Detail Charts</Report>" }, { "key": "Mosaic Household Comparison Report", "value": "<Report Type=\"summary\">Mosaic Household Comparison Report</Report>" }, { "key": "Mosaic Household Summary Chart Report", "value": "<Report Type=\"summary\">Mosaic Household Summary Chart Report</Report>" } ] },
