Alteryx uses Roles Based Access Control (RBAC) to restrict access to Alteryx products and some components of Platform. Users can be assigned multiple roles at once.

  • No Role: Users who have not been assigned a role.
  • IT Admin: For administrators who are responsible for setting up and managing enterprise applications.
  • Platform Admin: For department leaders and power users who manage user access on behalf of IT.
  • Designer Cloud Creator: For analysts who create and share workflows and datasets. This role grants users access to Designer Cloud.
  • Machine Learning Creator: For analysts who create insights and predictive models. This role grants users access to Machine Learning.

This table outlines the permissions associated with each role for different parts of Platform.
