    Tableau Server Permissions within WebEdit

    Srini Mathkur

      Hi

      We are looking at enabling WebEdit mode for a subset of our users on Tableau 9.2 server and we have a below few concerns we don't know how to best address:

       

      1. Tableau 9.2 provides users with ability to create their own calculated fields in web edit mode. We were exploring options to see if our admin can control user access to creating calculated fields within webedit mode or atleast to have an option to track all the fields being created by our users.

      2. Users can download the complete underlying data once web edit mode is enabled for them. This happens even after we have denied permissions to download full data on workbook and project level. This is major worry for us as our data is very sensitive.

       

      We are excited about exposing ad-hoc analytics on server but the above points are holding us back. Any help in this regard will be much appreciated.

       

      Thanks

      Srini
