    Using the Token/Security Method to authenticate users in API

    Peter Maslin

      hi

       

      i am asking this here as im not sure where else to ask , in our implementation of tableau we use the token method for verifying users , and there arent many examples of using this fully with the API , for each session (page refresh) we get a new token for the user and apply it as part of the trusted url and pass it as part of the url to an iframe as per the old methodology.

       

      using the java viz method whats the best way to do this , and also incorporate getting the token as part of the viz build as we have to get new ones for security purposes, is there a call we can make to get the token etc ?
