Release 5.1




You can create additional administrator accounts using one of the following methods.

The password for the default admin account should be changed as soon as you have access to the application. See Change Admin Password.

Create admin accounts


  1. Login using another admin account.
  2. Create the account normally. See Create User Account.
  3. Select Settings menu > Admin Settings.
  4. In the Admin Settings page, click Manage Users.
  5. For the newly created user, click the checkbox in the Alteryx Administrator column.
  6. Save changes.
  7. Login to the account and verify that the Admin Settings page is available.

Create admin account outside the UI

If you do not have access to an admin account through the application, you can create admin accounts for users from the Alteryx node using the webapp/bin/ensure-user command.

Without SSO

If Single Sign-On (SSO) is not enabled, use the following command:

<install_dir>/webapp/bin/ensure-user --admin "<FirstName LastName>" <e-mail> <password>

With SSO

If the enviroment uses SSO, the following command can create the admin user based on an Active Directory login:

<install_dir>/webapp/bin/ensure-user --admin "<FirstName LastName>" <e-mail> <password> <AD_LOGIN>


<AD_LOGIN> is the active directory login for the user. 

Create admin accounts under SSO via Alteryx command line interface

You can also use the Alteryx command line interface:

./ --admin_username <admin_username> --admin_password <admin_pwd> edit_user --user_name  <username> --enableAdmin --ssoPrincipal <sso_Principal> 

See CLI for User Admin.
