I have following queries:
1. Is there a way I can write a custom application, which will be able to read the details from Tableau Server, like list of users, workbooks, projects and permissions etc? Does Tableau expose any functionality by which we can read these information?
2. The way we can use Tabcmd to create the users on Tableau server, can we also use Tabcmd to do the following (without logging to server manually):
(the objective is to automate the process so Admin does not log-in manually to do these)
"Yes" to 1, 2a, 2b. "No" for 2c.
There are several views in our metadata database you can pull information from for "1". Details here:
The Tableau Server Administration guide covers the use of TabCmd to take care of "2".
