    Giving access to Guests with Tableau Online


      Hi all!


      I just bought Tableau Online License and i'm embedding my report into a web app that will be accessed by my clients. What I want is that they doesn't get requested to Sign In into Tableau and the can see the report instantly.

      What should I do to achieve this?

          Hi Julian,


          Embed Views into Webpages

          You can embed interactive Tableau views and dashboards into web pages, blogs, wiki pages, web applications, and intranet portals. Embedded views update as the underlying data changes, or as their workbooks are updated on Tableau Server or Tableau Online. Embedded views follow the same licensing and permission restrictions used on Tableau Server and Tableau Online. That is, to see a Tableau view that's embedded in a web page, the person accessing the view must also have an account on Tableau Server or Tableau Online.

          Alternatively, if your organization uses a core-based license on Tableau Server, a Guest account is available. This allows people in your organization to view and interact with Tableau views embedded in web pages without having to sign in to the server. Contact your server or site administrator to find out if the Guest user is enabled for the site you publish to.

          You can do the following to embed views and adjust their default appearance:

          • Get the embed code provided with a view: The Share button at the top of each view includes embed code that you can copy and paste into your webpage. (The Share button doesn't appear in embedded views if you change the showShareOptions parameter to false in the code.)
          • Customize the embed code: You can customize the embed code using parameters that control the toolbar, tabs, and more. For more information, see Parameters for Embed Code.
          • Use the Tableau JavaScript API: Web developers can use Tableau JavaScript objects in web applications. To get access to the API, documentation, code examples, and the Tableau developer community, see the Tableau Developer Portal.

            Hello Julian,


            I think this is just allow to license core Tableau Server.
