    User migration from local to AD - what about the passwords?

    Tobias Ruby

      Hi folks,


      we are running a Tableau Server 2018.2 with HA-Cluster and Failover mode.


      At the moment, all users are authenticated with local Tableau users.


      1) We'd like the users to authenticate with Active Directory server-wide, as well as for external users with SAML site-specific. Do you see here any problems?


      2) The migration article How to Migrate Tableau Server from Local Authentication to Active Directory by Using Site Migration covers the migration itself quite good, but how can I migrate the passwords? I'd like to avoid reissuing credentials to everyone (the local users would be new in the AD).


      Cheers Toby
