Server 2020.4 Release Notes
|Release Note Product Versions|
|Version||Date||Release||End of Support|
|2020.4.5.12471||November 18, 2020||Major||May 18, 2022|
To address security vulnerabilities in Python version 3.6, embedded Python has been upgraded from 3.6.8 in the 20.3 release to 3.8.5 in the 20.4 release. Custom tools and connectors (YXI files) developed by Alteryx, partners, or any 3rd party that don't ship with the Alteryx installer might need to be reinstalled. This impacts custom tools installed on Designer, Server, and Alteryx Analytics Hub.
Installation Experience Update
The current installation experience is now quicker due to the use of a new methodology. If you install this version and then decide to go back to a prior version (for example, you install version 2020.4 and then decide to go back to version 2020.3), you have to uninstall this version through your operating system (OS) and then install the older version.
Share Credentials with User Groups
You can now share credentials with a custom user group. The addition of this functionality further enhances the use of user groups and collections as an alternative to subscriptions. Visit Share Credentials with Users and Groups to learn more.
Add User Groups to Collections
You can now add user groups to collections. The addition of this functionality further enhances the use of user groups and collections as an alternative to subscriptions. Visit Manage a Collection's Users and Groups to learn more.
Credentials User Experience
We continued to make improvements to the user interface. In this release, the credentials interface got a user-experience upgrade. The upgrade includes standardized add, search, sort, filter, edit, and remove features.
New API Schedule Forecaster Endpoint
We added a new admin API endpoint to allow the retrieval of the schedule owner and the estimated run time. This supports decisions about when and where (on which worker) to schedule a workflow. Visit the Gallery API Overview to learn how to access the Gallery API reference documentation.
Improvement to Oauth in Interactive Gallery API Documentation
We updated the interactive Gallery API reference documentation to send Oauth parameters as headers instead of query parameters. Visit the Gallery API Overview to learn how to access the Gallery API reference documentation.
