Context menu actions:

For each user, you can perform the following actions in the context menu:

  • Edit:Modify user properties, including platform roles. SeeUsers Page.

  • Configure storage: If per-user access is enabled for the workspace, you can configure the access credentials for individual users, either using key-secret combinations or IAM roles. For more information, see Configure Your Access to S3.

  • Reset password: Self-service password reset is enabled by default. If enabled, click this option to send an email to the user to reset his or her password.


    Only platform administrators can reset a user's password. Workspace admins cannot.

  • Disable:When a user is disabled, the user cannot access the Trifacta Application.

    • The disabled user still counts against the workspace limit.

    • All of the user's assets are retained.

    • Assets that are owned by the user become inaccessible to other users that have access.


      Schedules owned by a disabled user continue to execute. An admin can disable the schedule. See Schedules Page.

    • To permit access again, select Enable.

  • Remove: When a user is removed, the user's account and all assets are removed from the Trifacta Application.

    • At time of removal, you can choose to transfer ownership of the user's assets to another user. If those assets are not transferred, they are removed with the user's account.


      If you must recover a removed user or that user's assets, please contact Alteryx Support within 14 days of the deletion.

    • An admin cannot remove himself or herself from the project or workspace.
