Click in-app to access the full platform documentation for your version of DataRobot.


To access account and profile information, two-factor authentication and other settings, data sources, and membership assignments, click your profile icon (or the default avatar ) in the top right corner.


The options available in the dropdown are dependent on your DataRobot permissions.

The following table summarizes the options:

Option Description
Profile Displays user account settings and provides links to change account information and avatar.
Settings Provides a link to change your password and an option to change the DataRobot language display.
Developer Tools Provides a link to change your password and an option to change the DataRobot language display.
Data Connections Lists—as well as allows you to add, delete, modify, and test—saved data stores and data sources.
Membership Displays the currently configured organization and any groups for the selected user and allows modification.

Update your profile


If your organization is using LDAP as an external account management system for single sign on, you cannot update your profile in DataRobot. Contact your system administrator for assistance.

Click the Profiles link to display your current profile settings. From this page you can:

  • update these settings (1)
  • select or change your avatar (2) (note that the avatar shown for this account was already changed)

To change settings, click Update Profile. Change or add profile information and click Save.

Find your API token

DataRobot automatically assigns your account an API token upon account creation. You can find your token listed as part of your account information. If you need to replace your token, for example because it has been compromised, you can do so via the POST request.

Change your avatar

The ability to change your avatar is only a feature for DataRobot Managed AI Cloud deployments. To select or change your avatar:

  1. Click Set Avatar. The link opens Gravatar in a new window. Login or create an account.

  2. Confirm that the email address you use with DataRobot is a registered Gravatar email address.

  3. If you haven't already, upload an avatar to your account. (Select My Gravatars > Add a new image.)

  4. From the Manage Gravatars page, select a default image and click Confirm.

  5. Return to DataRobot and refresh the page. If your new avatar does not appear, you can verify that the emails match:

Clear your browser cache and refresh the page. If it still does not appear, wait approximately 10 minutes and try again (Gravatar does not instantaneously serve new images).

Use the Settings options

To change your user settings, expand the dropdown by clicking your avatar and choose Settings. Under Settings you can:


If your organization is using LDAP as an external account management system for single sign on, you cannot change your password in DataRobot. Contact your system administrator for assistance.

Change your password

To change your password, enter your current password and then enter and confirm a new password. If your passwords don't match, either the existing or the new/confirm, you receive an error message.

DataRobot enforces the following password policy for new accounts and password changes occurring after October 5, 2016. Passwords must adhere to the following:

  • Only printable ASCII characters
  • Minimum one capital letter
  • Minimum one number
  • Minimum 8 characters
  • Maximum 512 characters
  • Username and password cannot be the same

Enable 2FA

Two-factor authentication (2FA) is an opt-in feature that provides additional security for DataRobot users. See the section on 2FA for specific set-up information.

Change the display language

To change the language DataRobot displays, expand the Language dropdown and click your desired language option. DataRobot reloads and switches the display to your language:

Note that changing the DataRobot display language does not change the appearance of fields in the uploaded data, model names, and some other UI elements.

Use the byte order mark (BOM)

The BOM is a byte sequence that is sometimes used to indicate encoding by adding three bytes to the beginning of a file. Software that recognizes the BOM is then able to display files correctly. DataRobot allows you to enable or disable inclusion of this marker in your user settings.

When exported CSVs include non-ASCII characters, include the BOM to ensure compatibility with file editors that do not prompt for encoding. Modern versions of Excel will correctly display international characters if the BOM is included. Without the BOM, Excel may misrepresent characters from languages other than English.

Use the CSV export toggle to enable or disable insertion of the BOM in exported CSV files. When enabled, DataRobot includes the BOM; the default is disabled.

Change your display color theme

Use the Themes dropdown to change the color schema of the application display, dark by default. To change the display, select the desired theme and save settings.

Setting Autopilot complete notifications

If you close your browser or log out, DataRobot continues building models in any projects that have started the model building phase. Use the toggle options to configure DataRobot to send a notification—either via browser alert or email—when Autopilot completes.

View membership assignments

From the Membership page, you can see which organization and groups your system administrator has assigned you to.

Organization and group assignments provide the way for system administrators to manage users, control project sharing, apply actions across user populations, etc. You may be a member of up to ten groups, or not a member of any groups. Likewise, you may be a member of a single organization, or not a member of any organization. System administrators choose how they want to configure user membership assignments, and only they can create and modify these memberships.
