Release 6.4.2




The Designer Cloud Powered by Trifacta® platform can be integrated with an existing SMTP server for delivering emails to users of the platform. This configuration is necessary if the following features are enabled:


NOTE: Installation and use of custom certificates on the Alteryx node is not supported.


To enable, please complete the following.

NOTE: If you are planning to enable SSL for communicating with the SMTP server, you must generate first a certificate for the server that is not self-signed.



  1. You can apply this change through the Admin Settings Page (recommended) or trifacta-conf.json. For more information, see Platform Configuration Methods.
  2. Edit the SMTP settings:

    "": "<SMTP_HOST>",
    "smtp.port": "587"
    "smtp.username": "<EMAIL_ACCT_USERNAME>",
    "smtp.password": "<EMAIL_ACCT_PWD>",
    "smtp.enableSSL": true
    hostHostname of the SMTP server
    portPort number to use to contact the SMTP server. 587 is the default value.

    Username of the email account to use to send emails to users.

    NOTE: This username appears in the email message.

    passwordPassword of the email account to use.

    Set to true, if the SMTP server is configured to use SSL. Default is true .

    NOTE: When SSL is enabled for the email server, its certificate cannot be self-signed.

  3. Save your changes and restart the platform.


If it's been enabled, you can reset user password. See Enable Self-Service Password Reset.

If not, you can use an external testing method to verify that the SMTP server is working properly.
