Hi, is it possible to get an auth token from the REST API for an instance of Tableau Server setup with SSO? (eg, the user would not have to enter credentials since they would be passed via SAML/Kerberos/etc)
No, even if you have SAML you should use your tableau password for REST API.
Other option is to log on with an admin user and impersonalate to the target user.
