    Tableau Online: Permissions-->Project Vs Work Book.

    Venkatesh A

      Hello,

       

      For a given "Project A" containing the workbook "WB1" setting the

       

      Permissions for "Project A" at project level for User X is as follows:

       

      a.Project:

      i. View-Denied

      ii.Save-Denied

      iii.Project Leader-Denied

       

       

      b.Work Books-None for all options within workbooks.

       

      c.Data Sources-None None for all options within datasources.

       

       

      Permissions for Workbook "WB1" for User X: Editor

       

      Kindly help with the below:

       

      a. When i login as User X i am not able to access Project A.

       

      b. But when i click the work books sections, i am able to access Workbook WB1 and it's views.

       

      Question 1:

      WB1 is part of Project A and if the user is cut off access at project A, should he able to access the workbook provided it contains the necessary permissions?

       

       

      Question 2:

      If that's the case isn't setting permissions at project level redundant?

       

      Question 3:

       

      Is there any hierarchy or precedence like permission at view level greater than permission at workbook level?

       

      I am confused. Any help is much appreciated.

       

      Thanks
