    Tableau RESTApi and authentication.

    Jaya Johnson

      Hi:

      Our understanding is that you can manage/change server resources using the RESTAPI, how do we enable tracking/audit trail of these actions. i.e is it possible to enable verbose logging to capture the ip address of the request or is it done via a combination of apache/tableau server logs.

       

      Thanks.

          In my AD authenticated, server 9.1 environment:

           

          If I use a REST login using '/api/2.0/auth/signin', then in ...\Tableau Server\data\tabsvc\logs\httpd\access.*.log I get a line like "POST //api/2.0/auth/signin HTTP/1.1"  that contains my IP address and a session ID. If you search for that session ID in ...\Tableau Server\data\tabsvc\logs\vizportal\vizportal-*.log, you'll find the username.
