    Change user display name to reflect married name via AD

    Nicholas Church

      Hello Tableau Gurus,

       

      Does anyone have any experience of changing user display names with an AD authenticating intance of Tableau Server?

       

      Our instance of Tableau Server is using AD authentication and we have recently have had a member of our community change their name (After getting married).

       

      The user has had their AD account updated to reflect their new name, however the corresponding Tableau account is not reflecting the new display name.

       

      If I delete the user in Tableau Server and then re-import them Tableau Server will then correctly show their new married name - however this is not an ideal solution given schedules / views of reports that the user has created.

       

      Any assistance / guidance would be appreciated.

       

      Thanks

       

      Nick
