Release 5.0.1




If your environment does not support the use of Chrome, you can install the Wrangler Enterprise desktop application to provide the same access and functionality as the Designer Cloud® application. This desktop application connects to the enterprise Alteryx instance and provides the same capabilities without requiring a locally installed version of Chrome browser. 

Designer Cloud application is a hybrid desktop application.Your local application instance accesses registered data files located in the datastore to which the Alteryx server is connected.

NOTE: The Wrangler Enterprise desktop application is supported on Windows only. The application also supports Single Sign On (SSO), if it is enabled.


To begin, you must download the following Windows MSI file (TrifactaEnterpriseSetup.msi) from the location where your software was provided.

If you are planning to automate installation to desktops in your environment, please also download setTrifactaServer.ps1.


Before you begin, you should perform any necessary configuration of the Alteryx Server before deploying the instances of the application. See Configure for Trifacta Enterprise Application.
