In V10.5.1 server and above, Tableau took out one feature and we want the feature back :
The designated Project Leader with an Interactor site role to perform permission jobs
- In large org, there are some non-technical project leaders who do not publish but manage permissions for others. This is reality. The previous designated Project Leader with Interactor site role is perfect for this use case since it reflects the real world. Now it does not work anymore....
- We also leverage the designated Project Leader with Interactor site role for our special controlled Tableau server cluster that nobody can publish anything directly and peer review is required before the content can be published to that serve cluster. Nobody has publisher site role for that server, we asked publishers to publish workbooks/data sources to another server cluster, after peer reviews, API will publish the workbooks/data sources to the special controlled Tableau server cluster. Everyone has interactor site role on special controlled Tableau server cluster to ensure nobody can publish directly. We leverage the designated Project Leader with Interactor site role for permissions process. Now this process and control is completely broken.
The ask is rollback the change. I agree that designated Project Leader with Interactor site role does have a little more privileges than interactor. But the risk is low since the key thing is that designated Project Leader with Interactor site role can't change user's site role from interactor to publisher.
