Hi David Bywaters,
To do this, you have two options:
+ Use extracts instead of a live connection.
Extracts don't require passwords
+ Use Server with an embedded password as the source for your embedded vizzes:
- Publish the Data Source (in your workbook) to Server, and remember to embed your password.
- Then add the newly published Data Source back to your workbook.
You're good to go!
Let me know if you have any further question.

Thanks for the response, but are we talking about the same thing here?
I am embedding a tableau viz on an external webpage. I need to use Trusted Authentication because I only want certain users to be able to access it.
Your steps seem to be about unrestricting access to the Data Source so any that anyone can access the data. How does this relate the security that Trusted Authentication is providing?
Also, I believe the sign in button is appearing because the authentication cookie in the user's browser is no longer valid (e.g. cookie has been removed, session on tableau server has ended, blocked because it is a third party cookie etc. etc.). Surely the data source password you are referring to is downstream of the browser authentication that is failing?
I still don't really think you've understood my question. The links you've sent are related to trusted authentication, but they don't provide a solution to what I've asked.
A+ for enthusiasm, D- for helpfulness!
