Control Designer Access to Gallery

Version:
2019.3
Last modified: November 27, 2019

The Open and Save options for the Gallery under the File menu in Designer can be configured using the RuntimeSettings.xml. If the RuntimeSettings.xml file does not exist, it will be created when Alteryx is installed. 

The configuration options enable you to:

  • Disable all Save and Open options for the Gallery
  • Prevent users from adding or removing Gallery connections
  • Provide a default Gallery location for use instead of the Alteryx Analytics Gallery

XML Options

To configure the Gallery options, add the following XML options to a <Designer> child node within <SystemSettings> in the RuntimeSettings.xml (C:\ProgramData\Alteryx\RuntimeSettings.xml). Each XML option is optional and only needs to be added if the specified value is different from the default value.

<SaveToGalleryEnabled>True</SaveToGalleryEnabled>: Enables or disables all of the Save/Open Gallery options. The default is True and the options are True or False.

<ManageGalleriesEnabled>True</ManageGalleriesEnabled>: Enables or disables the ability for end users to add or remove Gallery connections. The default is True and the options are True or False.

<DefaultGalleryUrl>https://gallery.example.com</DefaultGalleryUrl>: Specifies the URL for the default Gallery. The default points to https://gallery.alteryx.com. 

Example 1

  • Enable all Save and Open options for the Gallery
  • Allow users to add or remove Gallery connections
  • Change the default Gallery location to gallery.example.com 

"SaveToGalleryEnabled" is not included as the default value is "True".

Example 2
