    What is the value of the username() function in data source filters when doing extract refreshes

    justin.malloy.0

      I have a data source filter that uses the username() function to do row level security based on the logged in user to Tableau Server and this works fine if I refresh the extract locally but when the extract is refreshed on the server no data is returned in the extract because no rows meet the data source filter criteria.

       

      Is there some account that these extract refreshes run under so I can set my filter accordingly to return all data when the system is doing the extract refresh?  I tried setting it to the username used in the db connection but that doesn't work.
