I'm moving this to our Tableau Developer's Community where you're more likely to receive a response.
Thanks Diego...looking forward to a response. The life of my project depends on it. If this works them more people in the company will be exposed to tableau and its benefits and it will give stronger arguments for a full roll out.
Here is an overview of the Authentication methods supported by Tableau Server:
There are three Tableau Server methods that remove authentication from something users do directly in the Tableau Server UI.
Active directory users and Tableau configured for Active Directory Authentication required for this to meet your needs:
1) Automatic Logon/Kerberos
--A) This is useful when you have active directory users that are already logged on to the network, and would like to sign them in automatically using those network credentials
Options for both Active Directory or Local Authentication:
1) SAML - If the logon for your portal authentications to an IdP (Identity Provider) Tableau Server can redirect the users to the portal to sign in which will then POST back to Tableau Server with an assertion to log the user in.
2) Trusted authentication - Users sign in to the portal which requests a ticket for the user from Tableau Server. The portal then requests a view to display and redeems the ticket which allows the authentication to display the view.

Just letting you know the Trusted Ticket approach worked.
That's great Leandio! Now go off and impress everyone with Tableau
