    Tableau server single license on multiple systesm

    Ram Ragi

      Hi ,


      Recently we purchased a Tableau server 10 users license and installed on a single machine. Our question is, can we use the same license use in multiple systems at a time(with Five users on one system server and another five users on another server).


      Please guide us on to use single license on multiple system at a time.

          Hi Ram,


          According to the EULA the license would allow for one Production and two non-Production environments.    Below is a link where you'd want to select the EULA option if you'd like to review it:


          Legal | Tableau Software


          Though as a bit of a time saver I do see the following snippet in section 3.3.1 for Non-Production environments


          You may use the Server Software in a technical environment and on the platforms and configurations specified in the Documentation, solely for internal

          development and testing in connection with your licensed Software,or for disaster recovery purposes (“Non-Production Environment”). Your installation, activation or use

          of a copy of the Software in a Non-Production Environment is limited to the same number of Authorized Users and/or permitted number of Cores and/or computers

          as provided under Section 3.1 above

            If you have interactor license (sounds like you do), there's no limitation on how many environments you can install. If you have server core license, 1 production and 2 non-prod environments per Mark's post above.

              You really should confirm with your sales rep.


              With the given info provided, yes you could use 5 user licenses on one machine and the other 5 on a different machine.  Again, please speak to your sales representative to confirm.

                Hey John! Long time. Hope you're doing well. 


                FYI, what you've written here is not correct. Even with an Interactor license, you can only install to a single prod environment and two non-prods. See section 3.3.2 of the EULA which makes no distinction between a core & interactor based system in terms of how many environments you can run.
