I am investigating Tableau for our requirement. Our filters will have to be set up based on the user log in . This is for the customer facing products and would like to know if Tableau allows integration with web services . User data is available only through API/services etc .
Tableau workbooks on Tableau Server can use the username, name, Windows domain, and Tableau Server group in calculations, including filters. Tableau v7 has some APIs that allow embedding of views inside other web applications, Tableau v8 takes that to a whole new level, but I'm not familiar with all the details of the APIs capabilities.
