Developer Help

Access SDKs and APIs that let you extend the functionality and flexibility of Alteryx products.

Platform SDK

Alteryx SDKs let you extend your Alteryx experience in several different ways.

The Platform SDK is a modern superset of the capabilities available in the legacy Engine and HTML GUI SDKs. Previous SDKs use outdated technology and limit extension opportunities. The new SDKs use the latest open-source technology and open up new ways to extend Alteryx products.

SDK Quickstart Guide

Learn how to use the latest developer tools to create a custom plugin or tool for use in Alteryx. Go to Platform SDK Quickstart for more information.

AYX Plugin CLI Quickstart

The AYX Plugin CLI provides a single mechanism to guide you through the entire SDK development process, from scaffolding to packaging. Go to CLI Quickstart for more information.


The AYX UI SDK is a React-based software development kit that lets you build custom applications to use within the Alteryx platform. Go to AYX UI SDK for more information.

AYX Python SDK

The AYX Python SDK lets you extend the functionality of Alteryx Designer via custom tools and plugins. This SDK serves as the back-end engine component. Go to AYX Python SDK for more information.

Custom Plugin Testing

Maximize development cycles by testing your plugins ahead of time without Designer. Use the SDK plugin unit test scaffolding and Test Client to perform unit and client-side testing. Go to Custom Plugin Testing for more information.
