    intial sql and its use

    msa s



      i have gone through this one , is my understanding correct regarding initila sql


      initial sql:Introducing initial SQL with parameters in Tableau 9.3 | Tableau Software


      1)     is used to  check the current version, user,workbook name  of tableau


      2)     and regarding security we can enable  row level security : where  a stored proceedure is run using intial sql  window , and this stored procedure selects only particular user and this user can access only a part of the database, enhancing security.


      and one more thing


      3)     parameters can be  passed through custom sql  also ?


      4)     using the parameters in initial sql we can restrict or filter such as dates etc .



      is my understanding correct  ?
