If you need to create new workspaces, please contact your Alteryx representative.

Review Workspace Settings

As the first registered user, you are assigned the workspace admin role, which provides control over workspace-level settings. Before you invite users to the workspace, you should review and modify the basic configuration for the workspace. For more information, see Workspace Settings Page.

Verify Operations


Workspace administrators should complete the following steps to verify that the product is operational end-to-end.

After you have applied a configuration change to the platform and restarted, you can use the following steps to verify that AAC is working correctly.

Enable Applications

When your workspace is provisioned, all licensed applications are available from the App Switcher in AAC.


To access an application, each user must be provisioned an application-specific role. More information is provided below.

For more information, see App Switcher.

Invite Users


All workspace users must be assigned roles in order to access the platform and applications.  

Invite users to your workspace. If you intend to share the workspace with other users, you can invite them from within it. You must assign each user an application-specific roles.


First-time users of the product should access it by invitation only. Don't provide direct URLs to first-time users.

  1. To invite other people to join your workspace, select Workspace Admin from the upper-right Profile menu.

Assign roles

When you initially invite users to your workspace, they are assigned a default, non-admin role. You might want to change the role or roles assigned to their account.


To access a specific application, you must assign a designated role to each user.

  1. In the Users page, locate the user to assign new roles.

  2. From the context menu on the right side of the user's entry, select Edit.

    The default role permits a user to access the workspace. Access to higher-level operations or applications hosted in the platform is governed by assigning additional roles to the user's account.

  3. In the Edit user dialog, you can modify the user's roles.

    1. To assign a new role, select it from the Roles dropdown.

    2. To remove a role, select the X next to it.

  4. Application roles:

    1. Applications hosted in the platform require specific roles. Application-specific roles must be assigned to each user who is accessing the application.

    2. For more information, see Privileges and Roles Reference.

    3. You can also assign a role to multiple users. For more information, see Roles Page.

  5. To apply the changes, select Edit user.
