    using windows authentication with ms cube not working with tableau server

    John Walk



      I am facing a problem regarding the data connection towards an microsoft cube. If I use "windows authentication" it works fine within tableau desktop, but if I publish the workbook on tableau server, I cannot acces it because of an error (no access rights).

      If I use the "use a specific username & password" option it works, but it saves my personal username and if anyone else uses the workbook, the person has to delete my username and then enter his.


      How is it possible that the server just asks the username and password or, just uses the windows authentication which the server already uses for the server accounts.


      Help would be appreciated,

      thanks a lot!
