My requirement is to install tableau server on a virtual machine by configuring SAML with ADFS configuration on Tableau Server. I have gone through the documentation
online tableau help "Configure SAML with AD FS on Tableau Server " and needs few more clarification on some pre-requisites.
1. Since the user Authentication is "permanent", I would like to know if i should configure it as "Local Authentication" or "Active Directory" authentication
2. One of the pre-requsite says - "A site administrator account that uses TableauID authentication. If SAML single sign-on fails, you can still sign in to Tableau Server as a site administrator." I am not clear when to create this account after installing as local authentication?
Please help on this query
1. You'll want to enable Active Directory authentication.
2. I believe once Tableau Server is initialized after installation, a browser window will pop open for you to create an admin account.
