    Activate Tableau Desktop licence as Creator role

    Egor Rogov

      Hi, gurus!

       

      I a little bit stuck with new license roles, just today i upgraded Tableau Server to 2018.2 version.

       

      I have 10+ license with Explorer Role (Tableau Server) and 2 license of Tableau Desktop.

       

      The question is:

      Tableau Desktop is equivalent to Creator role? Can i activate my Tableau Desktop license as Creator Role?

       

      I already did some steps to configure my Tableau Desktop (Configure Tableau Desktop Reporting ) but still don't understand with activating Creator Role.

       

      Thanks, Egor

          Hi Egor,

           

          Activating a Tableau Desktop license will activate Tableau Desktop for you - but it will not add a Creator license to Tableau Server.

          If you have a Tableau Creator license, it will activate *both* Tableau Desktop and Tableau Prep - and add a Creator license to Tableau Server.

           

          If you would like to convert your Tableau Desktop license to a Tableau Creator license, your Tableau Account Manager can help you there!
