Hi Murali -
I just verified this doesn't work for me either (in 7.08). I honestly don't recall what the behavior was in 6.1, but I suggest you open a support case on this and ask the tech to file a bug - If you include the write-up above I think they'll have sufficient information to repro and get this to dev.
Did an issue ever get raised for this? I'm experiencing the same problem in 7.06. We have an external system that we need to synchronize users with Tableau, and every time a user changes their password, the entire process is quite lengthy:
1)Log in to Tableau.
2)Delete the old user.
3)Create a new user.
4)Add the new user to the appropriate groups
5)Log out of Tableau
This takes about 30-40 seconds in our dev environment (it should be a little faster in our production environment since the machines are more powerful).
If there's a fix for this, we'd love to hear about it.
I don't think Murali opened a case.
Thanks Russell. I've opened a support case myself.
