New Features

Version: 2020.3.4.30228

Release Date: September 1, 2020

Full Support for AMP Engine

Server now has full support for the new Alteryx Multithreaded Processing (AMP) Engine. The AMP engine supports multithreading and multicore processing. This results in increased speed of workflow execution. Learn more about AMP in the AMP Engine documentation. For more info on enabling the AMP engine see the Controller and Engine articles.

Custom User Groups

Curators can now create custom groups of users. This supports the long-term plan to remove subscriptions in favor of collections, see the Collections documentation for more information on this plan and steps to migrate your subscriptions to collections. In coming releases, collections users will be able to share collections with custom groups. See the User and Group Management documentation to learn how to create custom groups. 

Ability to Run Workflows with File Browse Tool via the API

API users can now upload an input file via the API to get a reference ID that they can then call as part of the question/answer parameter in the POST call to the /jobs endpoint. See the Inputfiles Endpoint documentation to learn more.

Disable Direct Downloads

Server admins can disable downloads from the Gallery by setting a flag on the Configuration page. Pair this asset governance measure with Lock Workflow in Designer to exercise control over your workflow assets. See the Configuration documentation to learn more. 

Collections User Experience

We continued to make improvements to the user interface. In this release, the collections interface got a user-experience upgrade which includes standardized add, search, sort, filter, edit, and remove features. See Collections: Admin Interface and Collection: User Interface to learn more.
