I'm looking to upgrade from Tableau Server 7.0.12 to Tableau Server 8.1.4 and I'm wondering if this will have any affect on a setup using a combination of active directory and local groups.
Essentially it would be good to know how local groups and active directory interact so we can mitigate any risk associated with the upgrade.
This should not be an issue.
When you say "local group", I assume you mean a group you created by hand in Tableau Server and populated with users?
An AD group which you "imported" into Tableau Server is actually nothing more than a "local" group populated with the appropriate AD users - nothing fancy.
