Track Data Downloads via Crosstab and PDF by User

Our company manages sensitive data deployed regionally via Tableau Server. We would love the capability to track when a user successfully downloads data from a Workbook via Crosstab or PDF on Tableau Server.

 

The workgroup data base in the Tableau Server Repository is great; however, we can only track when a user downloads a datasource or a Workbook.

 

Often times our end users will download data via Crosstab to conduct their own analysis. This poses a critical security risk as we have no way of auditing when a user has an Excel file containing sensitive data on their machine.

 

Changing end users download behavior is difficult to achieve, although it is an initiative, its imperative we have a way of auditing data downloads by user.

 

Thank you Tableau Community!
