The option to be able to search a field with wildcard characters is often needed. This functionality within the Calgary suite of Tools can be accomplished by having a “Contains” function, where this is accomplished without utilizing a wildcard to search. This also allows you to be able to use the Indexing power that the Calgary products offer, without having to do these searches with downstream functions like Filter or other Formula based tools. Tools used: Here's how 1) Create a base cydb file with this option selected: 2) Once the base file has been created, you now want to modify that cydb file to enable the Fields you want to query with the “Contains” option. In this example dataset, we want to be able to do these type of queries for the “CONAME” and “ADDR” fields:   Setup Calgary Input into Calgary Loader, when the following message will appear. Make sure you check “Yes”               3) Select the “Load a single advanced index” option   Set the Index Name you would like (in this case, keeping the same name), and choose the field desired from the “Source Field”.  Also, set Advanced Index Mode to Full Text     4) Repeat this process with all of the fields you’d like to be able to search.  In this sample, placing “mail” in the CONAME and “ln” in the ADDR fields returned this record:

This post pertains to any user that downloaded the US Spatial (Q4 2018) package from the Downloads & Licenses portal between the initial release on Wednesday, February 20th, and ~1:30pm EST on Friday, March 1st. You'll know that you have the outdated download package if you do not see 'TomTom US Q4 2018' on the 'Install' screen under the 'Drivetime Datasets' section.   The initial package did not contain the TomTom US Q4 2018 Drivetime data (Guzzler). Should users require the Q4 2018 US Drivetime data, they'll need to download the updated package and rerun the install. Fortunately only a portion of the install needs to be executed unless a Network Install was used. After downloading and extracting the updated package, you can upgrade the TomTom US Q4 2018 Drivetime data with the following steps (for local installation).   Run AlteryxDataInstall.exe and select 'None', then only select the Drivetime dataset. Uninstall TomTom US Q3 2018 if desired. Finish the installation as usual and be sure to restart Designer to refresh the list of available data sets. For customers that utilize the Network Installation process, the simplest approach would be to prepare a full network install in a new location, then ask users to uninstall the entire data package and re-register from the new location (as the registration process is quick to execute).   We apologize for the inconvenience. Please feel free to post questions below.   Jerad Rades Team Lead, Data Products

Hi all,   Effective with the Q4 2018 data releases, the base URL referenced in the .map files that render DigitalGlobe Satellite imagery is changing from dgmaps.alteryx.com to whitelist.alteryx.com/v1/dgmaps/v1. This change was made to align with our System Requirements. As we already recommend that customers have whitelist.alteryx.com listed as a safe site, we don't expect this to impact our customers.   Customers can still use the Q3 2018 DigitalGlobe data if they run into network issues. Any network-related issues should ultimately be resolved by whitelisting whitelist.alteryx.com.   Regards,   Jerad Rades Team Lead, Data Products
