You can create connections to one or more Microsoft SQL Server databases from Designer Cloud Enterprise Edition.
- If you haven't done so already, you must create and deploy an encryption key file for the Alteryx node to be shared by all relational connections. For more information, see Create Encryption Key File.
If you plan to create an SSO connection of this type, additional configuration may be required. See Enable SSO for Relational Connections.
To create this connection:
- In the Import Data page, click the Plus sign. Then, select the Relational tab. Click the SQL Server card.
- You can also create connections through the Connections page.
- See Connections Page.
For additional details on creating a SQL Server connection, see Enable Relational Connections.
This connection can also be created using the API.
- For details on values to use when creating via API, see Connection Types.
- See API Connections Create v4.
