    Authenticating with JS API

    Gabriel Attoun

      Hello,

       

      My team is developing a site with Tableau Online that displays workbooks and sheets to users outside of our organization. We're using the REST API to programatically create users and give them workbook permissions. Now we'd like to display the workbook in our application (with Row Level Security). However, because they are already authenticated to our site, we don't want them to have to login to Tableau or any other service.

       

      So how do we pass their authentication credentials to Tableau via the JS API? Or do we instead authenticate them via the REST API?

       

      Thanks!
