Release 5.1



As part of the install process, an admin user account is created.

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

This account is required for accessing the Admin Settings page and other features of the Designer Cloud® application. See Admin Settings Page.

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


  1. Login to the application using the admin account.
  2. In the menu bar, click Settings menu > Administrator.
  3. Enter a new password, and click Save.
  4. Logout and login again using the new password.
