Configure User Self-Registration

By default, Alteryx users can register themselves for an account, which immediately grants access to the platform. If preferred, registration can be gated by the admin user, so that all users are verified by an admin prior to having access to the platform.

  • When single sign on (SSO) is enabled, self-registration is disabled.


  1. You can apply this change through the Admin Settings Page (recommended) or trifacta-conf.json. For more information, see Platform Configuration Methods.

  2. Set the following parameter:

    "webapp.selfRegistration" = true,
  3. If you want users to validate their email addresses after registering, set the following parameter:

    "webapp.validateRegistrationEmail" = true,
  4. Save your changes and restart the platform.


If your environment includes SSO or Kerberos for authentication, a workspace administrator must apply a principal value to user account before it can be used. See Users Page.
