    SAML Authentication Lifespan

    Dwight Taylor

           Question, once a Tableau server user successfully authenticates to Tableau server configured to use SAML authentication, if the user closes the browser, does Tableau server automatically trigger a SAML logoff action?  If the IdP has a timeout of 24 hours, when the user opens a second web browser to access Tableau server will they have to re-authenticate to the SAML provider, or will the previous authentication, given the 24 hour timeout of the IdP server, allow the user to authenticate without entering the username and password a second time.
