What is your idea?

 

Provide the ability to log out user sessions created with Trusted Authentication through the REST API.

 

What problem are you trying to solve or what scenario would this idea solve?

  • Trusted Authentication provides a convenient means for users to view embedded visualizations without having to sign-in and supports delegated authentication.
  • The user's session identifier is needed to log out a user with the REST API but this information isn't readily available
  • For security reasons, it is helpful to have this functionality so that users can be logged out of Tableau when their application session is terminated
  • This is especially true since Tableau reporting often contains sensitive information that should not be available after a user logs out

 

What workaround have you found and used so far (if any)?

 

We are presently implementing the steps outlined at the link below which involve directly accessing the Tableau database.
