SAML is not currently available, but will be supported in 8.1 (due out 4th quarter).
Yes, thank you. Does anyone know in 8.1 how this will work?
I was hoping a Tableau rep or someone with knowledge of SAML would be able to assist. I might be too early on this question :-)
Hey Nick -
SAML as implemented in 8.1 is not about authenticating against data sources -- it's about giving you an alternative to trusted tickets when it comes to authenticating a user against Tableau when the user credentials live in some arbitrary store (LDAP, MSFT AD, forms, whatever).
So in this case, SAML isn't going to help you much - it's all about getting users INTO Tableau.
