    Anyone using a viewer license?

    Julia Hennelly

      We are interested in having viewers and interactors on our server.  Are there different licenses for viewers and interactors that can be purchased separately?  Assumption being that a viewer license is less expensive due to reduced functionality?




      All users on Tableau Server must be assigned a license level, even if it is that they are Unlicensed. License Levels control how much access the user has on the server. This is a summary of the differences between Viewer and Interactor license levels on Tableau Server.

      Note: These capabilities are allowed by default with each license level. Additional permissions can be added to specific views, workbooks, and projects.
