System Requirements

Last modified: March 12, 2021

Alteryx is supported on desktop computers, stand-alone servers, and virtual machine environments with the following minimum requirements.

Required Minimums for Server 2019.4

Machine 64-bit
OS Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 or later
Chip Quad core (single chip)
Processor 2.5 GHz or faster
Disk Size 1 TB

Other Requirements

Administrator Rights Administrator rights are required to install Server.
Active Directory Read Access

Read access to Active Directory, if you plan to use Integrated Windows Authentication. Visit the Gallery help page to learn more about authentication options.

FIPS Mode Disabled
Access to Alteryx Licensing System

Ensure the computer can contact the web domain used by the Alteryx licensing system.

File Share Access

Read and write permissions to the file share.

Predictive Tools Install In order to use the Predictive Tools, you have to include them in the install of Server. 
Base Address The base address is the URL that users will use to access the Gallery. The URL defaults to http://localhost/gallery/ which can be used to run the Gallery locally on the machine.
SMTP Server Notifications and account validations are managed via email. SMTP host information is required for Gallery email notifications.
Default Gallery Administrator

This depends on the type of authentication selected when the server settings were configured. The Gallery administrator is given permission to access the Gallery and manage users and workflows.

  • If you use Windows Authentication, provide the user name of a domain user.
  • If you use Built-in Authentication, provide the email address of the site administrator during configuration and then provide the first name and last name on sign in to complete the Gallery admin account registration.
Database Type

If you are configuring the machine to run a Gallery instance, you have to use MongoDB. MongoDB version 4.0 is embedded with Server 2019.3+. If you are upgrading from a version prior to 2018.1, you will need to upgrade to a version between 2018.1-2019.2 before upgrading to 2019.3. MongoDB versions 3.0, 3.4 and 4.0 are supported for user-managed instances.

  • For embedded MongoDB, the automatically generated host, username, and password are available for you to use.
  • For user-managed MongoDB, specify this information based on the configuration of your MongoDB instance(s).

If you were previously using SQLite for Alteryx Scheduler, you have to manually re-schedule jobs when switching to MongoDB.
