    Enable Automatic Login Error

    Nick Rosiello

      I am using Active Directory authentication on Tableau Server and am trying to configure Automatic Login.  Currently, when I enable Automatic Login and try to access Tableau, a pop-up window asking for a username/password displays.  Even when I manually enter my credentials into the pop-up, it will not let me login.


      Checking the Tableau Server (running on Windows Server 2008 R2) httpd error logs reveals this entry:


      (OS 1326)Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.  : authentication failure for "/auth": user unknown


      Does anyone have any insight to what this could mean?

          Hi Nick,


          Even we are facing same issue. have you got any workaround (or) resolution for this error message while trying to enable automatic login on Tableau server. We have AD authentication enable and working on our server.


          Our expectation is once we enable automatic login on Tableau server. It should pick credentials from browser.where we are already logged in into intranet.
