    Retrieving parameter from server

    John Gonzalez

      Hi,

       

      I am wondering if it's possible for Tableau to access server parameters to create a dynamic query.

       

      My scenario is such that I would like to display dashboard data applicable only to the user that is logged in. The username associated with the user will allow me to subset the query correctly but I don't know if Tableau actually has access to this server variable. Does anyone know if this is possible?

       

      Thanks for any insights you might be able to offer.

       

      John
