Data Engineering with Alteryx

By: Paul Houghton

Overview of this book

Alteryx is a GUI-based development platform for data analytic applications. Data Engineering with Alteryx will help you leverage Alteryx’s code-free aspects which increase development speed while still enabling you to make the most of the code-based skills you have. This book will teach you the principles of DataOps and how they can be used with the Alteryx software stack. You’ll build data pipelines with Alteryx Designer and incorporate the error handling and data validation needed for reliable datasets. Next, you’ll take the data pipeline from raw data, transform it into a robust dataset, and publish it to Alteryx Server following a continuous integration process. By the end of this Alteryx book, you’ll be able to build systems for validating datasets, monitoring workflow performance, managing access, and promoting the use of your data sources.

Managing collections

As a content creator or a server administrator, you will often need processes for sharing content in a controlled manner. For example, managing access to published workflows, insights, and schedules for the groups of users who require that content allows you to keep the content secure and discoverable for all your end users.

When managing the content in a collection, two aspects need managing—the content in the collection and the access required for the collection.

Creating collections

In the Alteryx Gallery, curators can assign the collection creation permission to any user. To confirm whether you have the Collections Creation permission, navigate to your profile page and check whether the Create New Collections permission is checked, as in the following screenshot:

When you have the Create New Collections permission, you will see an Add...
