I am trying to pass session information (logged in user information) from Cognos to Tableau. I embedded a tableau dashboard within a cognos report, the tableau dashboard is secured by user filtering. When accessing the dashboard from Tableau server, the user filtering works perfect and I have no issues. But when accessing from the cognos report, the dashboard does not read any user value; instead just shows the information with the published user.
I embedded the dashboard using the script Tableau has on the share menu, not sure how to pass session information when using the script. I am new to Tableau and it is my first time embedding the script in another application.
Thanks a lot for all the help
when you use that embedded script it will take always the currently logged on user from Tableau. What kind of authentication do you use? AD, SAML or something else? If you have single sign on it should work out of the box.
