    How to get/show list of active users real time?


      Hi all,


      We are using tableau desktop 8.2.0 and have admin access for one id.

      I am trying to find a way to show a list of active users real time.

      I found thread/125793 about a similar discussion but it looks like that was to get list of all the users and not just active users.

      Also, when tried following:

      1. Login to your server as an admin

      2. Once you've logged in, type http://servername/users.xml into the Browser

      IE gives me an xml error and chrome says:

      This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.

      And its blank.

      Another option suggested in the same post was to try with Custom Administrative Views by setting up readonly user to access _users table from tableau database. But it's mentioned that it is supported with Tableau Server 8.2.5 and later.


      Is there any other option that I can try to get list of active users real time?


      Thanks in advance.
