The Viewer site role existed in previous versions, the new Viewer site role has more capabilities. The former Viewer site role is now called Read Only.

Thank you for your reply.
I still have a question, the explorer license can only create dashboards from tableau server. However, if i give a user the publisher site role, the user can connect to any type of data source when working on tableau desktop =>he is not limited just to the data published on the server anymore.
Its like i have extended the functionality of the license. Right?
Tableau Explorer is the server and you can have limited features to create views.
Latest tableau server added end user can connect new datasource and create views.
