Another way of asking that question may be: If I choose active directory authentication for my Tableau users does the active directory that the tableau software machine belongs to have to also be the active directory domain that the Tableau users are authenticated against ?
It does not. It's documented in the admin guide: User Management in Active Directory Deployments
Our server is in our main AD domain (AMERICAS) but we also have Users from other AD domains (APAC, EMEA, etc.).
Hi Toby. Thanks for directing me to that document. It was just what I was looking for but hadn't found
It looks like the multi-domain bridge is the windows domain trust mechanism. We will need to look into the feasibility of this method but it at least gives us an option.
