Platform Admins set a run mode when installing Analytics Hub. This is the list of blocked tools, events, and data connectors for both Semi-Restricted and Restricted run modes. Semi-Restricted and Restricted run modes require a Run As user to be set up on the platform. 

Semi-Restricted and Restricted: Tools That Block Directory Access

In both Semi-Restricted and Restricted mode, Analytics Hub users can't run workflows with these tools if they read data from or write data files or folders outside of the Analytics Hub virtual file system.

Restricted Mode: Blocked Tools

In Restricted mode, Analytics Hub users can't run workflows with these tools.

Restricted Mode: Blocked Functions

In Restricted mode, Analytics Hub users can't run workflows with these functions.

Restricted Mode: Blocked Events

In Restricted mode, Analytics Hub users can't run workflows with these events.

  • Run Command Event
  • Send Email Event

Restricted Mode: Blocked Data Connectors

In Restricted mode, Analytics Hub users can't run workflows with these data connectors.

Run As

Restricted and Semi-Restricted run modes require a Run As user. The Run As user is the default account that the engine service runs as. To set a Run As user, go to Platform Admin > Settings > General > Run As. Enter a username and password for the Run As user. Select Save.

If you have engine workers, each worker has to have that user or system account. When AAH sends a workflow to run on the engine worker with a run as user specified, that account needs to exist on the machine.

To check or change your run mode setting

  1. Go to INSTALL_LOCATION\Alteryx\Alteryx Analytics Hub
  2. Open the Settings.yml configuration file.
  3. Find your current setting (for example, run_mode: "0"). Available settings are:
    • 0 = unrestricted
    • 1 = semi-restricted
    • 2 = restricted
  4. Update the setting and select File > Save.
