Hello, my company has recently adopted Tableau Online and would like to run a python script using REST API to query all existing users and groups on TOL.
I am following the sample code (Python Example for Sign In and Sign Out (JSON)) provided here: https://onlinehelp.tableau.com/current/api/rest_api/en-us/REST/rest_api_concepts_auth.htm
I filled in the server_name, user_name, password and site_url_id variables for our Tableau Online instance.
When I run the script I receive this error: "requests.exceptions.HTTPError: 405 Client Error: Method Not Allowed for url: https://online.tableau.com/api/2.5/auth/signin"
Am I missing something here? Are Post Requests not allowed on TOL?
I am new to using REST API, so any guidance is appreciated! Thanks!
Tableau Online is no longer on REST API version 2.5, I recommend testing with this endpoint:
