New Features

Schedule Forecast Performance Improved

The Schedule Forecast performance was improved by up to 98%. We’ve added the ability to perform regularly the average runtime calculations and to cache the results so that page loading for the forecast is much quicker.  

Go to Gallery Settings to set the frequency in which the cache is updated. You can refresh the Schedule Forecast manually on the Schedule Forecast page. For more information, visit the Gallery Configuration and the Schedule Forecast: Admin Interface help page. 

EULA and Privacy Policy Information Added

We've added links to the Alteryx End User License Agreement and Privacy Policy to the Help menu. To access all this information, select the question mark icon in the top toolbar.  

Collections Overview Updated

The Collections table view was updated in the Server UI to bring you better user experience. 

Server UI Improvements

Now you can rename workflows from the workflow details page. We've enabled workflow name customization, added a tooltip to each collection name, and increased the width of the collection name column. For more information, visit the Workflow Options in Gallery help page.

MongoDB Upgrade to Version 4.2 (starting with 2021.3.6.01129)

We upgraded the embedded MongoDB to version 4.2. We also upgraded the drivers for MongoDB to support up to version 4.4 for user-managed MongoDB. For more information, visit the MongoDB Schema Reference and MongoDB Advanced Connection Strings help pages.

*In accordance with security best practices and to prevent potential manipulation by bad actors, Alteryx does not disclose the details of any open vulnerability until all supported versions are updated with a fix. Beginning with 2022.3, releases and updates will become available and will continue until the fix has been supplied for all supported versions. To ensure that all versions you use are promptly fixed, regular updates are strongly recommended. More information will be made available once the vulnerability has been fixed for all supported versions that were impacted.
