Change Admin Password

As part of the install process, an admin user account is created. For security, this password should be changed.


Some platform functions cannot be executed without an admin account. Your deployment should always have an admin account.


After the Alteryx software has been installed, the administrator of the system should immediately change the password for the admin account through the Trifacta Application. If you do not know the admin account credentials, please contact Alteryx Support.


  1. Log in to the application using the admin account.

  2. In the menu bar, click User menu >Preferences.

  3. Click Profile.

  4. Enter a new password, and click Save.

  5. Logout and login again using the new password.
