What are kind of restrictions you are looking for ?
Like only certain users need to open tableau desktop like this . if its go to tableau application folder —> properties —> security —> Assign a group of users who want to access they only can access tablwau desktop
Hope this helps
Could you potentially be a little more specific when you say "Restrictions"
Thank you for your responses! I am asking if it is possible to restrict access to the data source, dashboards, and/or worksheets on Tableau desktop. We do not plan on publishing it on the Tableau server.
If you're not publishing your datasources, then there's not a specific way of setting permissions for the the datasources. I would suggest just not giving certain people the data source. If there was a Tableau Server involved you could set permissions for specific datasources, and be able to use server side filters that change the sheet/dashboard depending on the user logged in. Let me know if this is useful or if you need more clarity.
Thank you for your help!
