    • All of the user's flows and datasets are retained.
    • Resources such as connections and flows that are owned by the user become inaccessible to workspace users that have access.

Workspace Status

Users in the workspace can be set to one of the following statuses:

  • Enabled: User can log in and use the workspace normally.
  • Disabled: User account has been disabled by a workspace administrator. User cannot use the workspace.

    NOTE: A disabled user's flows and datasets are still stored within the workspace. However, the user cannot access them. Ownership of these objects has not been transferred. A workspace administrator has ownership privileges on the user's objects.

Edit Users

To modify a user account in the workspace, please complete the following steps.


  1. Locate the user in the list of users in the workspace.
  2. In the context menu on the right side of the user's listing, select Edit.
  3. In the Edit User dialog, modify the following properties as needed:
    1. Name: The display name of the user.

      NOTE: Only platform administrators can edit a user name. Workspace admins cannot.

    2. Email: The email address is used as the login identifier. This value cannot be modified.
    3. Roles: Select or remove the workspace roles to assign to the user. For more information, see Workspace Roles Page.
    4. Deployment management: When selected, this user is assigned the deployment role in the platform. In a Development environment, this role can be added to a user's account to enable access to the Deployment Manager.

      NOTE: Deployment management user accounts are intended for managing production execution of flows. These users have a different and limited user interface in the Designer Cloud application . There should be a limited number of these accounts.

      NOTE: Only platform administrators can assign the Deployment management role. Workspace admins cannot.

      1. In a Production environment where the Deployment Manager applies to the entire instance, this role does not apply.
      2. For more information, see Configure Deployment Manager.
      3. For more information on Deployment Manager, see Overview of Deployment Manager.

        NOTE: The Trifacta admin platform role must be assigned through the Users section of the Admin Settings page. This section is disabled by default. For more information, see Manage Users.

  4. To save your changes, click Edit user.
