*Scaling with Cloud Execution for Desktop


As organizations navigate the increasingly hybrid IT landscape, flexibility and choice across cloud environments are finding more adoption. With Cloud Execution for Desktop you can accelerate your journey towards the cloud by extending, augmenting, automating, and executing your desktop-built workflows in the cloud. Several recent enhancements include:


  • Availability of Cloud Execution for Desktop in the Azure Private Data Plane! Build workflows in the familiar comfort of Designer, then seamlessly publish and manage them in your preferred cloud playground. This means broader choice, increased flexibility, and a smoother transition to the cloud.
  • New orchestration capabilities for Designer workflows, allowing orchestration of both on-premises and cloud-native workflows. By leveraging Alteryx Plans, users can effortlessly orchestrate multiple desktop workflows, creating a unified approach across environments.
  • A new Compatibility Checker, making it easier and faster to move analytic workloads from Designer to Cloud Execution for Desktop. Join our Private Preview to evaluate workflows that are good candidates for Cloud Execution for Desktop. Contact your Alteryx Customer Services team for details. 



  • Expansion to GCP: Seamlessly publish and manage workflows in your preferred cloud playground, offering even more choice.
  • Version Control Flexibility: We’re giving you the power to choose the optimal timing for transitioning to a newer release, like 24.1, ensuring a frictionless experience with your existing workflows until you’re ready to update to the latest features.


Simplifying Your Enterprise Tasks


Our latest product release embodies enterprise readiness with a focus on automation and security. You can expect a robust suite of features, such as secure authentication for data safety, out-of-the-box connectors for seamless collaboration, and scalable management.


Databricks Unity Catalog Volumes


Simplify data loading and enhance security with the Databricks Unity Catalog Volumes. This feature makes it easier than ever to load your data into Databricks, eliminating the need for external locations and storage credentials and ensuring a more efficient and secure data integration experience without compromising on security.


Automate with Data Connection Manager (DCM)


DCM is the central hub for managing your data connections at scale, offering unparalleled security, administrative efficiency, and effortless credential sharing. We're also introducing new enhancements that automate your processes and foster collaborative efforts.


  • Manually updating connections when transitioning between Alteryx environments can be time-consuming and error prone. Today, we added Environment Connection Handling, designed to automate updates based on their storage or execution environment. This ensures effortless transitions between Alteryx Environments, particularly in enterprise deployments.

  • Generic Vault offers a comprehensive solution for retrieving secrets from top-tier or custom-built vaults, simplifying the process with straightforward parameter specification, secret mapping, and deployment options available on both Designer and Server.


More Choices of Data Connectors


This 2024.1 release brings a significant expansion in your connectivity options as well. With new connectors like Parquet, SAP IQ, Dremio, Trino, and OpenAI, we give you an array of possibilities to work with data more effectively.


Asset Transfer for Workflow Ease


We recognize a smooth workflow and schedule management can be tricky when employees leave the company. With Transfer Asset Ownership in Server, you have access to easy transfer schedules and workflows between users, maintain a complete version history, and perform bulk transfers of workflows, schedules, and collections using our APIs. This innovative feature simplifies the process of making changes to your team, ensuring that your operations continue running smoothly.




Server's SQL Server Integration Simplifies Data Control


Alteryx Server supports user-managed MSSQL databases, giving you the flexibility to choose MSSQL as their preferred database for your Server persistence layer. You can easily set up new Server environments directly with MSSQL. If you're already using user-managed Mongo or built-in Mongo, you can also migrate your database from Mongo to SQL using our new MongoDB to MSSQL Migrator workflow.


Designer, Server, and the 3.10 Python Upgrade


We’ve completed a Python upgrade from version 3.8 to 3.10 in Designer 24.1 to meet critical security standards. Users and creators of custom-built SDK tools (including those on the Community Gallery and Marketplace) and Server customers who test workflows in sandbox environments can find details in this FAQ. If you’re ready to update your custom SDK tools, follow these step-by-step instructions for guidance, testing, and troubleshooting.
