    Non Overwriting of Workbooks by other user in tableau server

    srinivas kumar



      I created a project with name Testproject,group with name GroupA and two users with name UserA & UserB in Tableau server.

      I gave the permissions as publisher for GroupA.

      From Tableau Desktop level, UserA  publishes a simple workbook called TestReport with 2 worksheets  in Testproject project into tableau server.


      Now my requirement is:


      I want to login through UserB. I want to make changes TestReport just by adding one more sheet in the workbook from server level.

      Here i dont want to save and overwrite the current workbook which is published by UserA. I have to do SAVE AS only. If i am trying to save with same name it has to show that "OVERWRITE IS NOT POSSIBLE FOR THIS USER".

      Above requirement is done in Tableau Workbook level. But i want the solution in Server Level


      Kindly help me if there is any options in tableau server to not Overwriting the current workbook which is published UserA by UserB.
