A Note About Changing Your Credentials Setting

Changes to your credentials setting can affect your schedules.

  • A change from Use Default Credentials to Require User Credentials disables schedules in the Gallery.
  • A change from Require User Credentials to Use Default Credentials disables schedules in the Gallery.
  • If users created schedules without credentials, a change from Allow Users to Select to Require User Credentials disables schedules in the Gallery.
  • If users created schedules with their credentials, a change from Allow Users to Select to Use Default Credentials disables schedules in the Gallery.

The Workflow Credentials Setting determines whether users are required to enter when they run workflows. Select the Workflow Credentials Setting on the Configuration page of the Gallery Admin interface.

  • Use Default Credentials: Runs all workflows using the default Run As account, which defaults to the LocalSystem account. You can define a Run As account on any of the following process levels, listed in order of precedence:
    • Per studio subscription via Default Credentials.
    • Per worker node by adding a Run As account on the System Settings > Worker > Run As screen. Visit Worker for more info.
    • Per Server via a modification to Alteryx Service with the Windows Services Console.
  • Require User Credentials: Prompts users to enter their credentials when they run the workflow.
  • Allow Users to Select: Allows users to select credentials requirements when saving a workflow to the Gallery. Options include:
    • User is not required to specify credentials
    • User must specify their own credentials
    • Always run this workflow with these credentials

The credentials setting you select might require additional user permissions. For information on setting Run As User permissions, see Set Required Run As User Permissions.
