Hi MULLA BAJEE VALI,
Tharashasank Davuluru You are right..and i am giving a live example here..
We use Webseal for providing access to our external users.
What it will do is, When you login to your portal the IDM will send communication to both your Webseal, your Tableau Server and get authenticated.
If you are good then a valid session will be established to both your portal and the Tableau server.
Now, you can access the reports from your Tableau server by using your Tableau API's and show them as iFrames in the portal or you can embed them in to your web portal.
Tableau Newbie here; How do you control the data so these external users only see information relevant to them?
To be more specific, our users (1000+) log into our external website, we will present a dashboard to them that is filtered with only their information. Our Tableau server uses LDAP for authentication but none of these external users will be on LDAP. Do we pass a username that corresponds to a generic LDAP userID and then control the data with a filter?
Looking for suggestions...
