    Oracle Essbase Security

    Mark Schneeberger

      Will Tableau inherit the native security from Oracle Essbase?


      Can I set up Active directory authentication and then have Tableau pick up the security, for that user, from Essbase.


      I see for SQL data sources you can set up something called an Impersonation account to pick up any native security filters in the SQL data source.


      Business case:  The customer does not want duplicate the security set up in Essbase, in Tableau.  The users are currently being authenticated against Active Directory automatically.  This must stay in place.

      Then, if a user only has access to a segment of data in Essbase that user must then in turn only be able to visualise that same segment of data through Tableau.
