    Custom Administrative Views - Group Membership

    David Mannering

      We've connected to the Tableau Server internal database to create a dashboard showing various statistics about workbooks, users and views, and it works well.  Now we'd like to create one that simply shows group membership at a glance, basically just a cross tab with all server users as rows and all groups as columns and an X in the cell if the user is a member.  The problem is that while we can get a list of current users from the _users table, the groups table is not accessible.  We can access the historical tables, but that doesn't give us the current state unless we process all of the historical updated/delete transactions (even then it only goes back 183 days).  Why isn't the group table accessible like the _users table?  Is there another way to do this?
