    Removing download option from tableau web

    Mahesh G

      Hi,

      I am trying to setup permissions such that users should be able to edit the workbook from web and save it, but disable download option. While publishing the workbook, I am setting up the following options.

      But when I set "Download/Web save" as as Denied, and "Write/Web Save" as Allow and publish, it is removing the download link but it is also removing the save option in web edit mode. Below are the options I get in edit mode

      Is there a way where I can enable save option but remove download option.

       

      I found a way to remove download option by updating in tableau server using tabadmin

      • tabadmin set vizqlserver.showdownload false

       

      but this will remove option to everyone and every visualization in tableau server. I would like to have download option enable for system administrator.

       

      Can you please help of there is any other option.

       

      Thanks,

      Mahesh
