    Embedded Views - Can a username be used simultaneously?

    Matthew Donofrio

      Hi, we're having an issue trying to determine how to map our Portal Users with Tableau Users in order to view embedded views.  Since Tableau User does not have an web service to create users on the fly, we need to find another way.  Here are the options:

       

      A) Create 1 Tableau user which our Portal users will use to generate a ticket unique_id for the Embedded View

      B) Create 10 Tableau users and rotate them based on availability.  Portal users will use these to generate a ticket unique_id for the Embedded View

      C) Try to ensure a 1-1 mapping with Tableau Users and Portal Users.  Not easy because there is no web service to create users.

       

      How have others handled this?  Can we simply assign 1 username to all Portal Users (ignoring permissions for the time being).

       

      Thanks.
