To configure Platform, set up your Local Admin and Single Sign-On. You have to set up the Local Admin before Single Sign-On.

Local Admin

Set up the Local Admin, who configures Single Sign-On so other users can access the system.

When you purchase Alteryx, it comes with 1 user: the Local Admin. We ask for the email of the person who you want to serve as the Local Admin. After you receive that email, you can set up the Local Admin.


Set the password for the Local Admin.

  1. As soon as we make your instance of Alteryx available, the Local Admin receives a password-reset message.
  2. Select Reset Password.
  3. Enter a password that meets the listed requirements.
  4. Select Sign In.

Record your password in a secure place. If you forget your password, you have to contact Support to reset it.

If you don't respond to a password-reset message before its link expires (12 hours), you have to contact Support again.

Sign In

  1. Go to https://{YOUR_COMPANY_NAME}
  2. Select Sign In As Local Admin.
  3. Enter the Local Admin credentials.
  4. Select Sign In.
