Today another customer asked me about this connector. I believe it's a good idea to include it in a future release!

I am throwing my hat in this ring. We need this.

Had a call with another customer today who asked about this. Any feedback from Alteryx team on if/when this will happen? Thanks!

For now, we are using Casabase connector to access Hyperion Cube / Essbase.

Alteryx tied up with Casabase which is a third party tool used to connect Hyperion Cube / Essbase.

Does anyone know how to add the Casabase connector to access Hyperion Cube / Essbase?  Is it an additional cost?


Adding another vote for Essbase/Hyperion connectivity in Alteryx. It's a frequent request from our customers.

Just a remark: The lastest Essbase version (21c), a REST API is  available. Since older versions are only supported until the end of 2021, most Essbase users will probably upgrade to the latest version,  I already tried connecting from Alteryx to an Essbase 21c running on Linux this way, it seems to work fine. A REST API is also provided for Oracle EPM Cloud, going to try this as well.


Unfortunately, there is no REST API for HFM and Hyperion Planning (and I don't expect one), and these products are still used by many customers (and supported until end of 2032). Thus connectivity would be great.
