    intial sql and its use

    msa s

      Hi

       

      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  ?
