    Run As User - server configuration

    Sean Mullane

      Does anyone have suggestions for best practices on how to configure Server's "Run As User" option to use an Active Directory user instead of the default "NT AUTHORITY\NetworkService"? I realize I could use my own AD user account to give Tableau the same permissions I do, but it seems like there might be unintended consequences. Would it be better to create a new, separate AD user?

       

      Also, are there any problems caused by having the "Run As User" AD user be able to log into the server as a Tableau Server user? E.g. if I use my own user account for "Run As User" while also having an interactor license, would it cause problems when I try to log into the server to view a workbook?
