Release 6.0.2



You should change the passwords for the Alteryx® databases immediately after installing the software.

Please complete the following steps to change the passwords for the Designer Cloud Powered by Trifacta platform users of the Alteryx databases.

Change in Database Server

  1. If you have not done so already, switch to the MySQL user and launch:

    sudo su - mysql
  2. For each database, change the default password. Default usernames are listed for each database. Please modify the command if you are using different roles and insert a more secure password for <new_pwd>:

    NOTE: In MySQL, the dash is a forbidden character in usernames. Please use underscores instead.

    ALTER USER 'trifacta'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY '<new_pwd>';
    ALTER USER 'trifactaactiviti'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY '<new_pwd>';
    ALTER USER 'trifactatimebasedtriggerservice'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY '<new_pwd>';
    ALTER USER 'trifactaschedulingservice'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY '<new_pwd>';
    ALTER USER 'trifactaconfigurationservice'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY '<new_pwd>';
  3. Exit:


Change in Alteryx configuration

  1. Below are the username and password properties for each database. You can apply this change through the Admin Settings Page (recommended) or trifacta-conf.json. For more information, see Platform Configuration Methods. Please review and update as needed:
