I am assuming from your description that the Workbook was published, with an extract as an embedded data source?
The user Filter is applied on the Data Source.
When you download, the download is a TWBX file.
This TWBX file will hold ALL of the data (whether there is a user filter in place or not)
The TWBX can then be opened and the Data source filter removed...
Tableau does not download just the data that an individual has access to.
(If you are using a live Data source (ie a connection to a live DB) or a Published Data source, then the data isnt downloaded when you download a workbook. You just get the TWB
Hope this clears things up.
Thanks for confirming..But i think tableau should add this feature in future release. As it defeats the purpose of data source level filter.
My understanding is that this is in the pipeline.
Anyone able to confirm?
All the best
