    Publish from DT to Server

    Daniel Vincent

      Generic question that I didn't have an answer for.  I was recently asked by an I/T professional what is the mechanism that Tableau uses when it publishes the viz from Desktop to Server (i.e. TCPip.) 


      I gave the general connection process where it authenticates locally at the server based on the previously administered rights for whoever is attempting to publish.  The 'mechanism' was a new one for me and I'm not sure what to say or how to convey what is going on beyond what I said.  I asked why they needed to know and it was said they just want a better understanding of the process.


      Anyone have more insight to what the magic is that makes the connection possible for DT to publish to Server?  Or rather have a better explanation than what I have?
