    Authentication configuration from Desktop to Server

    Nick Bachofen

      Our Tableau Admin created a "sand-box" environment for us to review version 10.2


      We noticed that when we connect to Tableau Server using Tableau desktop it was sending us down a new path:

      • NEW Path --> Redirected to our custom Single-Sign on page. This mimics how we log into Tableau Server using a web browser. (SAML based authentication)
      • OLD Path --> Local Authentication: Tableau Server username & password


      The issue: When our administrator finally upgraded our environment the NEW path doesn't exist....we are back to the "OLD Path" of local authentication.


      Question: Where and how can we configure this option to go down the NEW path?


      Thank you.
