To configure a machine to run a Server 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 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.
If you were previously using SQLite for Alteryx Scheduler, jobs have to be manually re-scheduled when switching to MongoDB.
These are the default ports used by Server. You can customize Server ports if necessary.
