You can download them like this: https://tableaulove.com/admin-view-twb-files-go-tableau-server-v10/ . To connect directly to the Tableau Server repository, you must first open up access to it.
You can also use these custom data sources, if you are interested in better understanding the data within the repository, and building your own custom Admin views: Shareable Data Sources for Tableau Server
Thanks for coming back on this.
So i am using tableau online rather than tableau server. Without totally understanding the methodology those articles are describing it looks unlikely that i am going to have access to correct data sources as i can't access the machine that tableau online runs on. (as it is a cloud service)
Is this correct?
Ah, sorry, I didn't realize that you are using Tableau Online. With Online, you are correct--you unfortunately cannot get access to the repository database directly, which would be needed to customize the admin views. The REST API will give you some information, but not user activity. The best thing you can do is upvote this Idea, and contact your sales rep and tell them you want your data
