    How to pass session credentials from Cognos to Tableau

    Naveen Ambati

      Hi ALL,

       

      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
