With a standard Server license your users will need to be logged in to Tableau Server in order to view pages embedded in other locations such as SharePoint. This license limits the total number of named users, regardless of how many are concurrently using the system.
If you would like a license that supports numerous concurrent users, please contact your Sales rep and ask about either a license with Guest support or a Core-based license.
Came up to this post and was not too sure from the wordings.
So do you mean that, if I have 10 named users (a,b,c,d,e,f...j), 15 people can be on the server at the same time, with some people using the same account concurrently?

Alan, these licenses are called "seat"s. Having 10 seats means that 10 people can use your server. Sharing the Tableau Server login accounts in order to avoid paying for more license seats is a clear abuse. However, those 10 people can be looking at as many different views as they like, and there is no "concurrency" limitation. If a 10-seat license is being called a "10 concurrent user" license somewhere, it is only in the sense of 10 concurrent *seats* - that is, if one person leaves your company, you give their license seat to another person.
Hope that helps. You can also, as Robert mentioned, buy Tableau Servers that do not operate in named-user licensing mode.
Thanks James By all means, we are not trying to abuse it at all. I just want to get clarification and proper procedures! Thanks
