New Features

Server Admin Diagnostics

The Diagnostics page provides visibility into user and asset information on the Gallery and worker machines in an Alteryx Server environment. Use the Diagnostics page to monitor the number of users, assets, collections, studios, credentials, schedules, and jobs on the Server. You can also view the number of worker machines that are connected and identify constraints in resources impacting performance.

Shared Studio Schedules and Results

To help users who collaborate on workflows, the Server now supports the sharing of schedules among all users in a studio. Once the option is enabled, users can see the schedules and job results for workflows published by all users in the studio. Users can edit and manage schedules created by the other users in the studio and view the job results for each workflow.

Automated Workflow Deployment

The automation of workflow deployments is now supported between Server/Gallery environments using a series of endpoints. Once the option to allow workflows to be marked as ready for migration has been enabled, users can then flag workflow and apps for migration and use an endpoint on the target environment to move them into the appropriate subscription (studio) all at once.

Upgrade Service Encryption

Encryption between the components that make up the Alteryx Service has been upgraded to use AES-256 bit encryption. Users connecting directly to a controller to create schedules in Designer will need to have an upgraded version of Designer.
