    Granting non-site admin the capability to define new schedules

    Hitesh Sharma

      Hi.

       

      We are new to Tableau and in a situation where the publishers are asking site admin rights just so that they can self service creation of new schedules. Asking them to depend on central group slows them down. Is there a workaround?

       

      I thought of scheduling a script that can read new request schedule info from a text file (maybe crontab format) and use server admin credentials to create a new schedule but could not find any command line or API interface to do so.

       

      How are organizations with one install, one site across with multiple departments managing this situation? Other tools allow users to define a new schedules without admin rights and therefore the  expectation from publishers.

       

      I searched around but could not find anything more than a feature request. Any info would help.

       

      Thanks,

      Hitesh
