    Can I remove the Tableau Server User with Display Name Tableau Software?

    Katherine Woods

      By default, my Tableau Server installation has a licensed user named Tableau Software what has publisher permissions. Can I remove this or unlicensed it to free up that license. Also, there is some concern that this user ID may be a back door into the server allowing for data security issues. Since I didn't create this user, or perform the original install years ago, I don't know if it was manually created during the original install process, I don't know if the install process auto-created it and if it must remain to server some purpose in the application.


      Does anyone have any insight into this user ID?
