User Authentication

  • Avoiding user credentials:

    • Guest user (Tableau OEM Shared Workbook): Anyone with access to the exact URL can view the reports and dashboards on the internet. More info: https://bit.ly/3lkqYDd

    • Single Sign-On (SSO): When a user clicks the “Sign in” button, SSO will automatically authenticate them. More info: https://tabsoft.co/3x8TKv6

    • Trusted Authentication: Authentication is done prior to reaching the embedded dashboard pages. More info:

    • Contact DataSelf to discuss the options above.

  • Default Tableau Server authentication: users need to enter their own Tableau credentials – usually, once a day.
