    How to restrict user to see particular Metrics in a Dashboard?

    ashok.kumar.3

      Hi All,

       

      In my dashboard 8 Metrics are there i want to give permission to users to see 4 Metrics one user, another 4 metrics to other user.

      Could you suggest me how can we restrict users to particular metrics.

       

      Thanks in Advance.

       

      Regards,

      Ashok

          Hey Ashok,

           

          If you are working with Tableau Server then you can control the use of certain dimensions/measures by using the function USERNAME()

           

          For example:

          You have a measure called Sales

          In case I login on your Tableau Server you don't want me to see anything.

           

          Create a new calculated field that says

          IF USERNAME() = "Matthias"

          THEN 0

          ELSE Sales

           

          Now use this newly created calculated field as your sales in your visualizations.

           

          Hope this helps!

           

          Regards,

          Matthias
