This page documents processes and FAQs related to My Alteryx, our new Single Sign-On (SSO) platform. We have attached step-by-step guides to help you activate your account, sign in, and update your profile. We’ve also provided answers to some key questions around My Alteryx.


A Quick Note About Timing:

 

My Alteryx will launch with the Alteryx Beta Program on 3/17. If you are currently a user of the Alteryx Beta Program, you will receive an email from no-reply@myalteryx.alteryx.com on 3/17 inviting you to activate your account by setting your password. We will then bring Alteryx Community, Licensing and Downloads Portal, and Partner Portal to My Alteryx in April. If you already have a My Alteryx account, you will be notified when you can access Community and these other applications through My Alteryx. If you do not have a My Alteryx account at that time, you will receive an email inviting you to activate your account.

Activating Your My Alteryx Account

If you are an existing user of the Alteryx Beta Program, you will need to activate your My Alteryx account once we launch the new platform on 3/17. If you are an existing user of Alteryx Community, Alteryx Licensing and Downloads Portal, or Alteryx Partner Portal, and you do not active your My Alteryx account when the Beta Program is launched, you will need to activate your My Alteryx account once we launch the new platform in April. Follow to steps below to activate your account:


1. Open your activation email from no-reply@myalteryx.alteryx.com and select ‘Complete Account Setup.’ The email should look like the screenshot below. Click the green button to continue. Please go to step 3 in this guide if you cannot find your email or if the link has expired.

Changing Your Email Address

If you move jobs or otherwise need to change the email address you use for My Alteryx, follow the steps below to change it. Keep in mind, however, that many of our applications rely on your email address to determine whether you have access to them. Changing your email address will require you to re-establish access to many of our applications by verifying a valid License Key. This is not the case for Alteryx Community – your Community account will stay with you after you change your email address.


1. First you will need to navigate to your My Alteryx profile. You can do this by going to https://my.alteryx.com or by navigating through links within Alteryx applications.


2. Once you reach the My Alteryx profile, click the link to ‘Change Email.’ You can see the disclaimer about losing access to Alteryx applications at the bottom of the profile page below.

3. Next you will need to complete MFA verification. You can do this with your current email address, or with your phone if you have phone-based MFA enabled. Select the MFA method, then follow the steps to receive and verify a code.


4. Once you complete MFA, you will see the page below. Enter your new email address here, and follow the steps to verify this new email address. Verifying your new email address is similar to completing MFA verification – you will receive an email with a code you need to enter.

5. Once you complete MFA verification with your new email address, you will be returned to the profile page, and your email address will be updated. You can see the profile page below.

Changing Your Profile Information

You can update your profile information, such as your first name, job title, or display name at any time from the My Alteryx profile. Follow the steps below to do so.


1. First you will need to navigate to your My Alteryx profile. You can do this by going to https://my.alteryx.com or by navigating through links within Alteryx applications.


2. From the My Alteryx profile, select the ‘edit profile’ link to change your information. You can see the link on the profile page below.


profile home.png


 

3. You will now be taken to a page where you can edit your profile information. The page below displays your current profile information and allows you to edit any of these fields. Once you click ‘continue,’ this information will be saved. Your applications will update with the new information the next time you sign in to them.

Adding Phone-Based Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

By default, we use your email address to verify your identity when you make a major change to your profile or log in from a new device. You can enable phone-based MFA from your profile to complete these verification steps via text message.


1. First you will need to navigate to your My Alteryx profile. You can do this by going to https://my.alteryx.com or by navigating through links within Alteryx applications.


2. From the My Alteryx profile, select the ‘change or add MFA phone number’ link to add phone verification or update your phone number. You can see the link on the profile page below.


profile home.png

 

3. Before adding or changing your phone number for phone-based MFA, you will need to verify your identity either via email or phone, if you already have phone enabled.


4. Once you verify the 6-digit code from your email or phone, you will be taken to a page where you can enter the phone number you would like to use for MFA. Once you enter your phone number, you can confirm it by either verifying a 6-digit code via text or answering a quick phone call. The page below shows where you enter your phone number and select your verification method.

5. Once you verify your phone number, you will be taken back to your My Alteryx profile. Now, you can use your phone number to verify your identity when updating your profile or logging in from a new device.



Frequently Asked Questions:


What Applications Are Accessed Through My Alteryx?


At first, only the Alteryx Beta Program will be accessed through My Alteryx. Alteryx Community, Licensing and Downloads Portal, and Partner Portal will be added to My Alteryx about a month after the Beta Program. If you are a user of any of these applications, you will receive an email before they are launched notifying you of the upcoming change. Other Alteryx applications and products are not part of My Alteryx at this time but can be added later on. Please note that you will not be able to sign in to Alteryx Gallery through My Alteryx - you will need to maintain separate credentials to access that system.



How Does My Alteryx Relate to Gallery?


The gallery is the current login system for Alteryx Community and the Licensing and Downloads Portal. When those applications are brought onto My Alteryx, Gallery will no longer be used for log in to those applications. Active users in these applications will be given an account in My Alteryx and will retain all their application and profile data, but will need to set a new password. At that time, all sign-in and registration links in Alteryx applications will direct you to My Alteryx. If you need to access the Gallery product, you can use the Gallery sign-in page as you did before – this will not be impacted by My Alteryx.



I Have Accounts In Multiple Alteryx Applications. What Will Happen When My Alteryx Is Launched?


When an application is brought onto My Alteryx, we will create and update accounts in My Alteryx based on active profiles in that application. For the initial launch of My Alteryx with the Alteryx Beta Program, all Beta Program users will be added to My Alteryx and will receive an email asking them to set a new password. When subsequent applications are launched on My Alteryx, users of those applications will be uploaded into My Alteryx. Each unique email address used to log in to Alteryx applications today will result in a single My Alteryx account. Let’s run through some scenarios.


If you currently access the Alteryx Beta Program, Community, and Licensing and Downloads Portal using the same email address (customer@business.com), then you will be able to access each of those applications with one My Alteryx account. This account will be created when My Alteryx is launched with the Beta Program, and access to Community and the Licensing and Downloads Portal will be added when those applications are brought on to My Alteryx. You will need to set a password on this account in order to activate it.
If you currently access Community and the Licensing and Downloads Portal using the same email address (customer2@business.com), then you will be able to access both those applications with one My Alteryx account. This account will be created when Community and the Licensing and Downloads Portal are brought on to My Alteryx and will need to be activated by setting a password.
If you currently use different email addresses to access Community and the Licensing Portal, then you will have two different My Alteryx accounts created when those applications are brought on to My Alteryx. One account will be used to access Community, and the other for the Licensing Portal. We are investigating ways to allow you to merge these accounts, but this is not a supported feature at this time.

 

 

What Is Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)? How Is It Used By My Alteryx?


Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is a security feature that protects against compromised credentials. When MFA is enabled in a login system, then users may be required to both enter a valid email address and password and then confirm that they own a device associated with the account they are trying to access. This adds significant protection against stolen credentials since a hacker or other bad actor would need access to their target’s email inbox or text messages, in addition to their email address and password.


By default, your My Alteryx account will use your email address as this second ‘factor’ when you are activated. You can add a phone as an option at any time from the My Alteryx profile. If you add a phone as an option, you will need to enter your phone number and then either confirm a code sent via SMS or answer a phone call.


I'm Having Trouble Registering For The Beta Program. How Do I Pass The License Key Verification Step?


The Alteryx Beta Program requires that users are licensed, Alteryx customers. If you are an existing user of the Alteryx Beta Program or Licensing Portal, then you will automatically be granted access to the Beta Program. Additionally, if you are a new user and you activate your license, either through the product or through My Alteryx, then you will be granted access to the Beta Program.


If you are a new customer and you attempt to access the Beta Program either before activating your license key or before the Licensing Portal is added to My Alteryx, then you will be prompted to enter your license key when attempting to reach the Beta Program. If you see an error during this step, you will need to verify two things. First, if you have activated your license key previously, confirm that the email address associated with your My Alteryx account matches the email address used to activate your license key. If these do not match, then you will need to either activate your license key again using the My Alteryx email or change your My Alteryx email. If you have not activated your license key previously, then go to https://licenses.alteryx.com and activate your license key. Make sure you use the same email address as the one in My Alteryx.
