Last modified: May 16, 2023

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

Required Minimums for Server-FIPS 2022.2


  Minimum Requirements Per Server Node Recommendations for Production Environments Per Server Node (Multi-Node Environment)*
CPU Intel or AMD x86-64 (64-bit) Intel Xeon E, Xeon W, AMD EPYC 7xx2, AMD Threadripper, or better
Number of CPU Cores**

4 cores (8 logical cores) per node

Example Environment:

  • Server UI, Worker, and Controller all run on the same 8 logical core node

8+ cores (16+ logical cores) per node

Example Environment:

  • Server UI: 16 logical cores
  • Controller: 16 logical cores
  • Worker1: 16 logical cores
  • Worker2: 16 logical cores
System Memory 16 GB 32+ GB
Recommended Minimum Disk Size 500 GB 1+ TB SSD 

*Enterprise Production Deployments vary per use case. For assistance assessing hardware sizing needs, talk to your Alteryx representative. Learn more in this whitepaper and our Configuration Page.

**This table assumes 1 physical core to be equal to 2 logical cores. For more information, please see our licensing definitions page

OS Microsoft Windows Server 2012 64-bit or later

Other Requirements

Administrator Rights

Admin access to the host server's operating system or physical access to the server hardware is required to install Server.

Active Directory Read Access

Read access to Active Directory, if you plan to use Integrated Windows Authentication. Visit the Server Authentication 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 Install Predictive Tools to run workflows that use the Predictive Tools on Server. 
Base Address The base address is the URL that users use to access the Server. The URL defaults to http://localhost/gallery/ which you can use to run the Server locally.
SMTP Server SMTP host information is required for Server email notifications. Notifications and account validations are managed via email.
Alteryx Admin User 

The Server administrator can manage users and workflows. A Default Server Admin is specified when configuring the authentication for the Server. Visit the Server Authentication help page to learn more about specifying a Default Server Admin. 

Database type

Server configuration requires MongoDB. MongoDB version 4.2 is embedded with Server 2021.3.6+. 

  • Embedded MongoDB: MongoDB Community is not FIPS compliant, therefore it is not embedded in Server-FIPS. You need the user-managed Mongo DB Atlas or MongoDB Enterprise Advanced.
  • User-Managed: Server supports MongoDB versions 4.2, 4.4, 5.0, and 6.0 for user-managed instances. 
  • For user-managed MongoDB, specify the host, username, and password from your MongoDB instance.
  • If you were previously using SQLite for Alteryx Scheduler, jobs have to be manually re-scheduled when switching to MongoDB.

For more information, visit the MongoDB Schema Reference help page.


These are the default ports used by Server. You can customize Server ports if necessary.


  • 80: AlteryxService, Non-SSL/TLS AlteryxServerHost (webserver), and AlteryxAuthHost (Authentication Service)
  • 443: AlteryxServerHost (webserver) and AlteryxAuthHost (Authentication Service) with SSL/TLS
  • 27018: Embedded MongoDB
Loopback only
  • 5562: AlteryxMetrics
  • 8700-8799: Python for Insights
