It would record multiple views in that case.
The default "Traffic To Views" dashboard doesn't have any logic in there that checks otherwise.
Thank you for your response, Justin. I was thinking of making a dummy report in order to check the logic.How did you know that there's no logic there? Have you tested it?
Based mostly on what I know about the hist_tables in Tableau's database.
However you can see the exact logic and the underlying data from the admin views workbook (found on your Primary Server machine under ...\9.0\wgserver\z5\WEB-INF\admin\tabbed_admin_views.twb),

The Tableau Server Admin Views use the underlying historical_events table in the tableau repository. This table contains one entry for every single recognized event that occurred on the Tableau server. The "Traffic to Views" workbook filters to just events recognized as a single "view" therefore if one user viewed a page 5 times those would log as 5 individual views not one joined view. The logic is around the action not the participant.
Thanks for the information. I am unable to check the logic, but thanks, anyway!
Thank you, Michael. I understand that it's counted on action base. I've confirmed by making a dummy report, too. (And, this is quite unworthy information but the view was counted since and when the file got published, I mean, before the first view, it's already three in the "Traffic to Views" because I've published three times.)
