I have server admin privileges on our server. Often, I am in a situation where I want to 'hide' a server site for a little while, but I don't want to delete it. Usually, there are number of users assigned to the site, there is content in the site, and I temporarily want to turn off access to that site and its contents. I also don't want those users to have the choice to visit that site at all.
I have tried changing the permissions for all the users on that site to "Unlicensed", but, that does not do what I intend -- when they log in to the server, they still get offered that site as choice -- ie they can see the site but none of its contents. This causes confusion. It would be better if the site I am trying to hide does not pop up as a choice at all.
My work-around has been to delete the site I want to hide (and to re-create it later as necessary), but that's a very inefficient kludge because I end up losing the assigned user list and their custom privileges.
Can anyone help, please? Thanks
The closest thing you can do to hiding the site is suspending it - this is in the site settings under "Availability".
Users will still see the site in the list of sites when they log into Tableau Server, but this will stop them from actually being able to access the site.
